I had to install the doors of a small cabinet on my own. I don’t normally back away from projects that require assembling furniture, except that this one’s a little unstable to begin with. For support, I angled one side of the cabinet away from the wall and pushed the other end against it.
One of the disadvantages of out-of-the-box products (like these) is that alignment of pieces may not always be up to par. These doors, for example, will ‘tilt’ downward and drag over the lower jamb if you simply screw them to the hinges. To hold them up during the installation, I inserted a folded piece of thick paper under both doors.
The original door handles are made of metal. They actually remind me of those chrome bumpers from yesteryears. While they reflect light, too, I opted for these ‘glass knobs’ because they look more feminine, and the delicate lines complement those on the beadboard paneling.
