Corbels

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.
