My latest obsession is creating corbels. I’m after a vintage look and style and have been creating my own patterns to give my interpretation of antique corbels. Here are a few examples of my work thus far.
A Colorful Pair
This pair measures about 18″ x 11″ and are my own design. So far, I’ve made 3 pairs of these and they have each sold within 24 hours of my delivering them to the store to sell.
I think it is the paint finish that I’ve used on these that make them so interesting. I use a lot of different color paints in a fairly random fashion. Then I sand them down a bit and apply stain. I’m trying different effects with varying colors of paint and stain.
Four of a Kind
This set of four were custom made for a contractor to use in a new house he was building. These are going to be used under a counter on a kitchen island. They were made a little heavier and measure 3.75″ D x 9″ x 12″.
I used a gray combination of both stain and paint and then added a distressed white paint finish, complete with a little crackle and a lot of sanding.
