Upcycled Corbel Shelf

I wanted a shelf for school supplies in our study room. If you recall, I painted a chalkboard-topped desk a few months ago for this same room. 

I wanted a shelf to keep certain items out of the little hands of two little boys. I was able to upcycle the corbels I used for this shelf from the old farmhouse that used to sit on our property. Quick explanation of the old farmhouse can be found here

My dad made the shelf on top of the corbels. It's a lovely piece of pine and he even left the bark on the side at my request. 

Here's a quick before picture of the corbels. I cleaned them (they'd been in our barn for ages) and then spray painted them with textured black spray paint.
