Hinges are hard! Flummoxed on how to secure this access door.

last month

So I cut a hole in the wall over the bathroom door to allow access for some storage over the bathroom ceiling. I made this nice door from some leftover shiplap to fit the opening, but now I can’t figure out how to secure it without trimming out the wall opening. It doesn’t have to be hinged, but that would be nice, since it’s kind of heavy.

The place is a rec and under slow construction, don’t judge. The door is just primered. I can’t decide if it should be wall (aqua)ceiling (white) or trim color (semi gloss white), feel free to comment on color.
