An old corbel and an old book used for a shelf.
I found the corbe first then I needed to find just the right book!
Perfect title, Popular Home Decoration
My DH did the measuring and the screws, I wanted the screws not to be seen so we just opened up the book cover.  I added 2 saw tooth hangers to the back of the corbel.
The whole scene of things I love,, repurposing, photograhy, and flowers with an old umbrella fo ...a little rain must fall.

You all have seen a shelf made out of a corbel but I used an old corbel and an old book used for a shelf. The book is screwed onto the corbel.
