Lamps often perform well in pairs, as you can see here. The beautiful color of these vintage pails is perfectly complemented by shades that look like they’re made from old French linens. These lamps practically beg to tell you this family’s history.

Lamps are one of the basic necessities of any interior. But they can be much more than that when they are fashioned from something unexpected or repurposed. Family keepsakes, like the pair of buckets on this table, have instant appeal — especially when the lampshades are crafted from old linens.

Weather-worn signs really embrace the vintage coastal look. Keep a look out at auctions or secondhand shops, or make your own using bits of old wood. Vintage coastal is all about an eclectic mix of items and styles. These old ice cream–making buckets have been made into lamps — a perfect example of upcycling.

Another pair of signs in Kelley Motschenbacher's home add personality to the living room. The whale-shaped Clam Hut sign was a great beach house score.

Motschenbacher has a thing for antique ice-cream-maker buckets, and has amassed a collection of those as well. Here they were transformed into lamps and topped with vintage fabric-covered shades. "I love to turn all kinds of things into lamps," she says. "I can walk into my lamp shop carrying a strange object and because they know me so well, I just hand it to them and they know exactly what to do."

Old wooden buckets are a perfect fit for a quirky cottage.
