Hanging Oversized Cabinet Doors

Marsha in Georgia says, “My kitchen cabinets appear to have been built on-site in 1958, 3/8″ lipped doors and original exposed hardware. The cabinet doors are wider than other cabinets. In 2010 the kitchen was remodeled using 3/8″ rabbeted door hinges that have failed. I think the doors may need 3 hinges due to width. Help?!”

Installing a Grab Bar on a Marble Surface

Ed in Alabama says, “My wife and I are getting older and I feel the need to install grab bars in our showers, both showers have marble surrounds. How do I locate the studs behind marble and drywall?”

Bathtub Drain Rust

Carmen in New Hampshire says, “I have a bathtub drain that has mold and rust in the sealant. I have tried everything I can think of to clean it such as bleach, peroxide, and lime away. Nothing has worked and I am embarrassed because it appears that I haven’t cleaned the tub. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.”

Crumbling Concrete

Lisa in New Hampshire says, “The concrete apron outside of our garage is crumbling and falling apart. Can we use pavers to repair this? Would that hold up to our winters?”

Popcorn Ceiling Stain Concealer

This tip was submitted by listener, Darryl Climer. I’m not sure where Darryl is from, but he said that his son-in-law was over for dinner one night and squeezed the catsup bottle a bit too hard and it sprayed catsup onto the kitchen ceiling. After looking at the stain for 3 years, Darryl finally decided to do something about it and here was his SS: He took a bottle of White-Out correction fluid and painted over the catsup spatters.
