Kim wanted to beef up her island and figured corbels were the answer. Until she got to Lowe’s and realized that corbels were $15 each and would have cost $90 for this project! So she got creative, borrowed a pen from a cashier, much to the horrified dismay of her significant other, and traced the outline of those corbels right onto a piece of lumber. Took it home and cut them out, and her grand total for six corbels? $6.51! Nobody ever said that it doesn’t pay to wear your thinking cap, but if they did, I would say they were wrong! Check it out on her blog Simple Needs.
