    Default Crumbling mess - Door hinge on drywall

    Here's my problem. The door to my pantry was attached to drywall via drywall anchors, but after years of opening and closing, the corner of the drywall began to crumble. I know that heavy objects typically should not be attached to drywall, but the person that installed the door was an idiot.

    Should I fix the corner with Spackle or wood putty then try to attach new hardware to a different part of the door and attach it to a different area of the wall?

    Is there some kind of epoxy/filler that I could use that would be strong enough to hold the door?

    I'm not sure if there is a stud in that area.
