Best Laid Plans

I had plans for this weekend. Great plans. Involving cabinets. And paint. I even bought the paint.

Alas. It was not meant to be.

Because when I went to take the doors off the cabinets, I discovered that at some point the hinges had been painted over.  Including the screws. And as much as we tried, we only managed to get the doors off but not the hinges off the doors themselves, stripping the screws in the process.

So now we're stuck with doorless cabinets and doors with hinges that - unless you know a super secret way to remove screws that are painted and stripped - won't come off.

And now I'm researching how to build new cabinet doors. What I thought was going to be a fairly simple project has now turned into a monumental task.

Sigh.

The best laid plans...

Ah, the joys of home-ownership. I wish I had some knowledge to share, but I'll just have to wish you good luck :)
