Coastal Lamp Makeover | Beach Decor | Garbage to Gorgeous #23 [Video]

Don’t trash those outdated lamps!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!
