cabinet doors falling off hinges
My husband and I bought our house in October, and we decided that the dated kitchen needed an updating. The hardware was (in our opinion) aging the kitchen so we removed the outside mounted H-Hinges and ancient cast iron looking handles, wood puttied the holes, sanded them, painted them, and then re- hung the cabinet doors. The issue is that the wood that the cabinet doors are made of is so soft, when we were putting the screws through, the opposite side would bow out. So we bought shorter screws, and now the doors are falling off. Also- now the holes for the hinges are too large to screw in to. We have no money left, as we also remodeled our family room (if we did we would just buy new doors). Do you have any advice on how to fix this?
