I discovered this morning that my wood medicine cabinet is not closing
flush anymore. The top part is still open about a 1/8 inch or so. I
do not think it is the hinges since when it is open and even shut it
is level. I think that the wood has bent, but I do not know how to go
about proving this and/or fixing it.
And here I thought that somehow the medicine cabinet had affected the
mechanism inside the toilet... <grin>
Sounds like the moisture in the bathroom has possibly warped the wood. You
can check to see if it is "twisted" or warped with a straight edge.
No clue how to fix it though. That can be suggested by someone else.

Hard to say....
I assume that this is made of solid wood. Has all sides of the wood been
finished equally? Can you shave someting off the front of the side panel
and bottom to shut the door. Can you easily refinish any shaved parts?
It should be solid wood, it was built with the house. As far as
refinishing the wood, I wouldn't even know where to begin. But it
does look like the wood might have gotten warped though. Thanks
though, I might be trying this option if all else (that does not
require refinishing/repainting) fails.
