Gadapalu – Alankaralu

I have taken this pet project to kill my time on weekends. However, it was not supposed to take four weekends.

The least used door

Never thought I would pull this off in my first attempt. Although the pictures show my mistakes and errors, I am very happy with the outcome. I am sure I will pull it off with finesse whenever I try this next.

The South Door

I was told by my family, very politely of course to start with the door we least use. That way, even if it turned out to be ugly, the other two doors can be done by professionals. I was totally on-board with the plan and proved that I can actually do it! The body pains that followed were a monster! Because I had to sit in all odd angles and lie flat on hard floor to be able to paint at eye level for eight hours! That’s how long one door took to paint.

Finally, the Main Door!

Do let me know what you think of my attempt at painting doors in the comments below!

HR by profession. Reading has always been one of my favorite things to do apart from gardening, cooking and driving.

It looks amazing. Superb work. Even with few imperfections your dedication, patience and hard-work is amazing. Keep it up.

Looks like some professional has done it, fantastic job! Those long hours have really paid off!
Color combinations really go very well and looks very traditional and authentic!
