When I posted our kitchen update here, I promised a tutorial on the corbels.
I love the rustic weathered wood look from Restoration Hardware.
The corbels from Restoration Hardware were $150 each. We needed 8 ( $1200)
We went with the Mission Corbel from Home Depot. $50 each ($400) plus stain.
There are 3 pretty easy steps in this process–
#1- go over the corbels with a coat of stain- I used driftwood.
#2- go over them with a coat of Jacobean.
I used a small sponge to apply. I didn’t cover the entire piece to allow for the weathered wood to show through as well. I wiped off with t-shirt rag material as I applied. Then I added more in some areas.
#3- I used white wash pickling to areas.
Make sure I left white wash in some of the crevices to give it that authentic aged look.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
