Corbel's make great shelves

A small cupboard stands in for a linen closet , and is much more appealing than just a door here , I used salvages corbel's as brackets for simple shelves for display

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hold up shelves. Create interest by using corbels to hold up your shelf. If you buy corbels unfinished you can paint them or stain them. To support a shelf, the depth of the wood corbels should be at least 70 percent of the overall depth.
