I bought this pair of corbels in an antique shop in Alabama over a year ago and have had great plans for them. They are finally in place! Here's some close up shots:
My "handyman" (aka: husband) had to do some repair work on the feet. Both swans had a section of its foot chipped off. He was able to repair one using wood filler, but the other one required a piece of wood glued on and then some actual carving.
I cleaned them, sanded lightly, and then painted them with chalk paint. They look great now. I have some pics of them before painting, but I will need to find them. Will post when I do.
And here's their view from above: My new floors! Bye-bye nasty carpet!
