So, my bedroom renovations continue. And one thing I needed to tackle for the first time in order to carry on was hanging my first ever door. It’s something I’ve always wanted to try. In fact, a couple of years ago, I hired someone for £40 to fit a much heavier one, so it was good to see his technique.
When I’d told my Dad how much it cost, he was shocked how expensive it was. I personally don’t think it’s that bad – but my Dad’s a pro and can fit a door in an hour. Depending on whether the frame is square or not, it takes me much longer.
And after my first door, I was on a roll and wanted to change the other two, too. But it was all a learning experience, so here’s all the methods I used in my video to try and help you along! If you have any questions, just drop me a comment and I’ll try to answer asap!
Here’s what I used!
