Ugly Lamp Contenders, Part 2

Ugly Lamp Contenders, Part 2
Are you ready for round two of the Ugly Lamp contestants? Remember to also vote for the ugliest lamps from round one! Did you have ugly lamp nightmares last night? I’m sorry. 
 Please cast your vote for the entrant you think is the ugliest lamp you’ve ever laid eyes upon over there at the polls on the right-hand side of the blog. 
 The top two winners of each bracket will then go head-to-head in a final vote-off for the grand prize of one $70 gift certificate to and the proud title of “Ugliest Lamp Ever!”

Ok, deep breaths. Steel yourself. Here we go.

No friends, I haven’t gone blind. You may think this is nothing more than a dust-blanketed ceiling fan, but lurking behind those orange flowers (which oddly, don’t match the yellow flowers, even though they are on on the SAME FAN) are three nightlight sized lightbulbs. Ugly and worthless!

As she excitedly flipped on her new lamps for the first time, it quickly dawned on Mrs. Johnson why they were on clearance. Mr. Johnson insisted they were fine.
from Adriana @ Mrs. Faz

Did you get the latest issue of Prison Cell Chic?
Yes, and I just fell in love with those wall sconces on page 32!
Me too! I’m going to order a pair just as soon as I can decide on a color, Interrogation Gray or Suicide Sage!

from Clare

You know when you’re walking down the street… and you see one of those couples? You know, where the girl is like, pretty hot, and the guy is … well … and you just kinda wonder, like how did they…? What does she see in…? Anyway. You know?
from Katy @ Sort Creative

Earl! Hurry! Grab the saguaro lamp! Hurry Earl, that man wearing the blue shirt is headed this way with determination in his eye and I couldn’t live with myself if I let this one slip through my fingers! Just think how nicely it will complement our beavertail cactus lamp back home!

I rubbed this lamp and dreamed of Jeannie, but all that popped out was a change of address card from 1974. Maybe I should get a new lamp. Or re-paper the living room. Eh, screw it.
from Denise @ Thrifty by Design

Sure, the new vaccine eradicated mumps in the late 40’s, but that doesn’t mean we can’t honor their memory.

“Welcome to Lamps R Us, can I help you?”
“You know, I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a transgendered alien matador lamp.”
“Then today is your lucky day!”

    This group is tougher to choose which is the worst. Ugh!

  2. August 6, 2010 / 6:12 PM

    Mmmm… me thinks you were just getting warmed up with the first group!!! Hahahahaha – Seriously! Your commentary is hilarious : )

  3. August 6, 2010 / 6:30 PM

    The second one reminded me of the leg lamp in A Christmas Story for some reason…

  4. August 6, 2010 / 6:45 PM

    These are all bad bad bad, but the worst is #9. *shudder*

    You are SO clever!

  5. August 6, 2010 / 7:26 PM

    Ugly lamps, beautiful comments. I’m still snorting.

  6. August 6, 2010 / 7:38 PM

    I honestly don’t know which I like better – the before and after projects or your sharp sense of humor. I come here daily for inspiration and a laugh!

  7. August 6, 2010 / 7:41 PM

    You know, I just can’t decide between #8 and #15. The problem is with the first I’m sure someone actually thought it was lovely, at one time. The second I’m not sure anyone ever thought it was lovely, just kitchy.

  8. August 6, 2010 / 8:26 PM

    Wow most of these are BAD! Although….I wouldn’t mind having #11!! I’d slap a new shade on there and it’s quite pretty!!!

    The prison cell one freaks me out a bit! LOL

    I’m a new follower and am in the middle of a remodel. You have so many great ideas. I will be back so I can figure out what to do once the dust settles around here.

    I’m at Please stop by for a visit.

  10. August 6, 2010 / 10:14 PM

    Compared to the contenders thus far, I totally should have picked up that thing I saw at Goodwill. I kid you not!!!

    Will the owner of #11 please send it to me???? Please?? Please?? I need it for my guest room. no joke.

  11. August 6, 2010 / 10:55 PM

    I was thinking the same thing, Solacemama! I saw the nastiest lamp at goodwill, too! I should have picked it up, or at least took a picture.

  12. August 7, 2010 / 12:03 AM

    That number 12. I mean, I see some real beauty in that!
    Damn Earl!

  13. August 7, 2010 / 12:06 AM

    i cannot choose, beacause I cannot breath, form laughing so hard – you crack me up!

  14. August 7, 2010 / 12:06 AM

    i cannot choose, beacause I cannot breath, form laughing so hard – you crack me up!

  15. August 7, 2010 / 12:06 AM

    i cannot choose, beacause I cannot breath, form laughing so hard – you crack me up!

  16. August 7, 2010 / 12:10 AM

    OMG, they’re getting worse!

  17. August 7, 2010 / 12:16 AM

    I was thinking #9 until I saw #10! Man, there are some really very ugly lamps out there!

  18. August 7, 2010 / 2:10 AM

    I kind of see potential in 11. New lamp shade and all… it’s definitely the better looking lamp out of the group!

  19. August 7, 2010 / 2:39 AM

    I like 11, It just needs a new shade!

  20. August 7, 2010 / 5:54 AM

    I think you need to start another blog like CakeWrecks except do Lamp Wrecks. Your lamp commentary needs to be a regular thing! 🙂
