A simple way to completely transform the style of your home. Look at the unbelievable before and after pictures of this home that was re-done with corbels. There’s simply no comparison.
They’ve been in use since ancient Neolithic times, and play a key role in Classical architecture. They are, of course, those ornamental stone pieces jutting out of a wall to carry (or to appear to help carry) a superincumbent weight. Oftentimes, corbels need not be necessary from a structural point of view, but add a rich, old-world touch of elegance to a wall, fireplace, or furniture item.
They need not be very expensive, either. Some, on Sears.com, for instance, are as cheap as a few dollars. Don’t forget to look around other places like Ebay.com and Corbels.com too, to find the best deals.
