Alright. Here is the tutorial for the corbel in my hallway. P.S., I am moving the hallway decor to the laundry room. I have a good sized SUNNY laundry room that needs a major over haul and I think it would be a perfect fit :)
Okay, the tutorial!
I got an old board from our garage. I free handed a design. It could be anything you want. You can find example online or dream up your own.
I used my jigsaw to cut out the design. (I heart my $20 jigsaw)
Then I repeated this step 4 more times so that I ended up with 5 of these. I labeled the first one with a one so that I could use that as the pattern every time. Cause a copy of a copy just isn’t the same. If you have seen Multiplicity the you know what I mean :)
I used my brad nailer (nail gun) to attach them together, one by one.
I had a piece of molding left over from my kitchen redesign so I cut it at 45 degree angles. I also cut out a rectangle that they would be nailed to.
I cut out another rectangle piece that was slightly smaller that the top piece with the molding. It got nailed on first. Then the top piece got nailed to that.
Here it is all nailed together! I puttied the nail holes and then sanded it smooth. Not too smooth though. I wanted it to look old.
I painted it this fun golden yellow and distressed it.
It makes a fun addition to my hallway and cost me nothing to make! Hey, who doesn’t like free???
