My living room/dining room is one big, boring rectangle with no architectural interest whatsoever. When remodeling this room recently we thought about putting in some columns with shelves but that just wouldn’t work as it would have cramped the living room. The next best thing would be to have the “illusion” that the two rooms were separated without losing the views from both sides or losing precious space. That’s when I started looking for a pair of antique corbels.
Beam? What Beam?
We made a trial beam. Thumbs up!
Supports are up.
Beam is up. Time to nail it in place.
Oops. Poor baby. Not a good thing to hammer your finger instead of the beam 🙁
I love my new beam!
Once that finger isn’t so sore we’ll put the corbels up.
For now the corbels look nice on the sideboard.
Can you see the beam in the mirror?
I love old architectural details and I love
how they are going to use it in their
home with a new beam.
