Raw Wood Corbels Turn Into Dramatic Feature!


Here are two sets of corbels I recently did for two different kitchen islands. Think outside the box - white was the original choice, but I think these are so much more unique & enhance the granite.
Detail of corbel.  I painted it black and added copper paint in the details w/an artist's brush, rubbing it into the curved areas.

"After" - I painted it in brown, then black overcoat.  I rubbed back to the brown to give it an aged effect.
