On Monday I showed you how easy it was to create your own set of corbels using nothing other than leftover wood scraps.
Hopefully I inspired you to make your own set, but if that didn’t work, I’m back to reinspire.
I’m giving you 14 ideas on what you could possibly do with those wonderful corbels you just designed.
These first few pictures are the corbels I showed you on Monday. They are currently being used on my bookshelf to hold up a few old novels.
I might just have to make another pair since these were originally going to be used as shelf brackets.
Besides my corbel project, the internet is full of ideas for what you could do with your own sweet set of corbels.
Cottage Elements created curtain rods out of her corbels. She was lucky enough to find them inexpensively at a local flea market. If I ever found a deal like that I wouldn’t have to create my own.
These room dividers were part of a feature on farmhouse living from the Everyday Home blog. If you want to install corbels as part of a room divider, make sure they are high enough that nobody hits their head. This, unfortunately, is speaking from experience.
Who knew, that corbels make beautiful wine bottle holders.
How beautiful is this headboard consisting of an old door, corbels and a shelf. I think I would be afraid that bust would fall on me in the middle of the night but concussion or not, I still love it.
This hanging candle holder was found over at Patina White. Those appear to be glass insulators holding tea lights on the tips of the corbels.
This pair of corbels, found at Gardening gone Wild, fits perfectly in the garden to hold these cute terra cotta flower pots.
This corbel along with the fence post was made by the diy network for Halloween. As long as you have the signpost, I would think it would be super simple to switch it out for all the holidays. Think North Pole, Pilgrims Landing….
If you have a big saw, probably a band saw you might want to attempt this beautiful desk from Restoration Hardware. It’s absolutely gorgeous but I think you should know it retails for $1295.
My computer didn’t like the link with this one, it told me it looked suspicious. It is supposedly from diyideas.com. Suspicious or not, this towel bar could convince me to redo my bathroom one more time.
This beautiful mantel from Shanty 2 Chic combines corbels that they purchased for $60 with newly distressed wood. Their tutorial also shows how to attach the mantel and corbels to the stone fireplace.
While this end table was showcased on Houzz in an article they did about thrifty and creative side tables, I think it looks an awful lot like the corbels used by Restoration Hardware for the desk above.
This shelf takes two of my favorite architectural salvage pieces, corbels and shutters, and combines them into one cute little shelf.
Had to include this cute little table. This was from my visit to Black Dog Salvage back in September. These corbels would be super simple to recreate.
I really want to make one of every piece I showcased, so don’t be surprised if I come up with another corbel project in the future.
I included all of these corbels and more on my Corbel board over at Pinterest. Take a look if you are still in need of more inspiration.
