Decorating with Corbels

I don't know about you, but I love finding architectural pieces such as wood corbels, iron pieces, and old windows. Creating with them is a game at times. Do I use them as they are or create something new? As you already know, I am the Queen of Clearance. In a recent sale I scored these beauties to use in our Savannah Property. They will be used in the new kitchen we hope to put in next year. One thing I learned through building our current kitchen is that you can order additional matching stain or paint from the cabinet company. The stain costs a little more, but when you see the impact adding architectural pieces can make, it makes up for the cost.
Clearance Maple Carved Corbels. They are 31inches tall!
and I bought them for 60.00 for the pair

Maple Corbels we used to build our stove area in our current kitchen.
These are 18 inches tall and 8 inches deep.

In our Savannah Library 2 Oak Corbels placed together became a piece of art.

Two Solid Oak corbels, a purchase for less than $20.00 for the pair become interesting book ends.

Happy Hunting!

  4. Hi Debra,

    How wonderful your Corbels are and love what you have done in the stove area.
    They make such a charming feature and I always think they look like they have been there for years.

    Hope that you are having a lovely week
