Don’t trash those outdated lamps! Give them an easy makeover! Take them from 90’s grape lamp to a beautiful coastal lamp! It’s a fun beach decor DIY!
We bought a neighbor’s house fully furnished and rented it for a two years before my parents purchased it from us,
Some of the decor had a very 90’s feel, including these grape lamps.
Here is the lamp before. Initially, I thought I might paint it and do a major redo. The more I thought about it, the more I realized it didn’t need a total makeover!
It’s a great quality lamp, very sturdy. The actual base color is very coastal with a washed-out feel.
I realized, the problem lies in the grapes and the shade.
Then, I got excited!
That’s an EASY fix!

Beach Decor Coastal Lamp Makeover Directions
I removed all the leaves and berries from the lamp and am getting ready to turn it into a coastal lamp.
I added rope and attached it with hot glue. This is the start of giving it the beach decor feel.
I glued on a small starfish to start giving it that coastal lamp feel.
I trimmed the ends of the rope.
I glued small sea biscuits onto the ends of the rope and put on a new lampshade. With the little coastal accents, it has a nice beach decor feel without screaming it.
Viola! A very beachy makeover! It’s about as easy as a makeover can get!
