Ugly Lamp Contest: FINAL ROUND!

Oh, I’m scared.  I’m scared for you and your tender eyeballs.  I don’t know if you can handle such a concentrated amount of ugliness all at once. Please, proceed with caution as you cast your vote for the grand prize winner!
In this final round, the top two Ugliest Lamps from each round will go head to head.  Or missing head. Or leg.  Or whatever. The grand prize winner will be announced tomorrow, and will receive a desperately needed $75 gift certificate to LightingDirect.com, courtesy of the swell folks at HomeTalk.com!
But that’s not all!  HomeTalk.com will also be giving away a $100 Target gift card to a Better After reader, or, if we reach over 1,000 entries in the giveaway, they will bump it up to $200! I think you deserve it for bravely witnessing such tragic lamps all week.  So be sure to come back tomorrow for that!

Now brace yourself.  Here are the finalists:

from Caitlin


Pug-ly Lamp was definitely the leader of his pack yesterday, but how will he fare against the other contestants?





from Sarah Jean


Raging Man also garnered many of the votes, but he wasn’t too happy about it.


from Juliette


Zombie Babies couldn’t be reached for comment, as they were busy eating the brains of the innocent.


from “Name Withheld”



A crowd favorite, will Deerly Departed rise to the occasion, or go belly up?






from Brittany

Broken Leg Lamp really kicked its competitors to the curb in Round Two.  Then it had to ice itself.


from Katie


Can Creepy Baby compete against the other humanoid lamps in this round?  He brought his bat.  He’s ready to play.

  1. I can’t decide between the angry man, which I think wins as funniest lamp, or the broken leg which wins weirdest lamp in my book!

  2. How do we enter for the target card giveaway?

  3. Target Giveaway is tomorrow!

  4. no the broken leg! it’s gotta be the creepy baby or raging man… or deer feet…I can’t decide!!

    The headless pug? I kinda think it’s hilarious. :D

  5. Can I vote for ALL of them? I scan through the pics and seriously CAN’T decide which is worse! :) WHO MADE THESE THINGS???

  6. I’m having a hard time, some of them are truly frightening!

  7. It was really hard to choose, but I went with creepy baby. But they’re all creepy. I heart this contest.

  8. The worst lamps ever! I voted for the Deerly departed.. because it went beyond ugly.. all the way to yuk.

  9. Best part of this contest was scanning through the final pictures and having my three year old stop me on the “creepy baby”. He said, “I want to look at that lamp. It’s a very pretty lamp!” When I asked what the pretty part was, he told me, “All of the baby, and all of the lamp”. I hope his wife is in charge of decorating when he grows up!

  10. So hard to pick just one. The zombie babies and inappropriate rabbit are really starting to creep me out.

  11. I’m feeling bummed out for the unicorn lamp. Is there a write-in option for this election?
    lol

  12. Seriously, they were all champs in the ugly category. The headless dog is just the wierdest for sure. But c’mon people….angry man is the ugliest one there.
    And yes…how do we enter for that Target card. Mama needs to go shopping. hehehehe

  15. Wow, all are pretty ugly but they made me laugh just the same.

  16. I love that someone put the broken leg lamp on a doily! (I think that was the first time I typed the word doily.)

  17. This is one very difficult choice, they’re all pretty scary-my tender eyeballs are stinging!

  18. Deer feet all the way! I think I had a nightmare about that lamp last night!

  19. Deer feet all the way! I think I had a nightmare about that lamp last night!

  20. Deer feet all the way! I think I had a nightmare about that lamp last night!

  21. you know what pushed the zombie babies over the top for me … the fact that the animals are not to scale. not only is the bunny inappropriately seductive, but it’s bigger than the elephant! come on!

  22. I voted for the broken leg lamp just because it grosses me out so bad that it is all dirty and sat on someones leg for god knows how long! ewwwww

  23. This was so much fun! I had NO idea there were so many horribly fabulous lamps out there! I had to go with angry man.

  24. I didn’t know there were such awful looking lamps out there! The headless pug-hilarious!

  25. The dog with no head was the funniest, but I voted for the broken leg lamp because it was the ugliest. It gives me shivers just thinking about it.

  26. The angry man makes me scared, the headless dog makes me creeped out. I wish we could vote twice!

  27. Well it was a hard decision to make, they are all so ugly and scary. But I looked at them and asked which I would hate to have in my house the most. Wow, that still was hard, but the raging man won. Him I would never want to come through my door!

  28. These are hilarious!

  29. This is hard!! You need to have more of these!! Maybe ugly candle contest? Ugly picture contest?? I dunno!! But more ugly!!

  30. They are all various levels of ugly, funny, or disturbing. But that headless dog just makes my skin crawl!! It isn’t funny at all; it’s just the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen!

  31. Deerly Departed is so creepy! It looks like it’s gonna kick you while you try to read next to it. There’s just something about a dead thing lighting up my room. The deer’s ghost is gonna haunt that place. How would you even get near it to turn it on?! I’d need one of those clap on devices.

  32. Those lamps are all equally hideous, but the dearly departed lamp just goes beyond tasteless to me and I grew up in a family of deer hunters!

  33. The zombie babies are my “favs”. They where after all most likely to try looking qute….

  34. Even the staunchest, and most ecologically minded individuals, would look the other way if these “lamps” were disposed of in the quickest, most fiery, way possible.

  35. My eyes are in shock, but i can’t stop laughing!!! Why would anyone ever make such ugly lamps!!!???

  36. How can I enter the target giveaway?
    And DEAR GOD. SO FREAKING UGLY.

  37. Oh the ugly!

  38. This is delightful horror. Horrific, yet delightfully humorous.

  39. I’m sorry but that cast lamp is just wrong on so many levels. ICK!

  41. I am new to your site and have been very impressed with the decorating photos you’ve shown. So when you first started talking about this contest, I didn’t know what to expect. I NEVER would have guessd at the depth of ickyness (and that’s not really the word, but I can’t think of the right one!) of these lamps.

    As equally mind-boggling as the before and afters you usually show, just in the absolutely wrong direction. Thanks for the laughs (and creeps and nightmares, too)!

  42. I don’t get how someone could actually USE these lamps!

  43. I love that pug!! Can I have it after the contest is over?? :) (I’m serious!)

  44. They were all very disturbing this year, but I have to admit that the leg lamp was beyond creepy….I think it inspired me to make a lamp out of the jar they gave me that contains my daughter old ear tubes…after she had them surgically removed…yuck. I was perplex why the Dr. would even offer them to me for memorabilia. Gross and creepy.

  45. My mom & I went into an antique store yesterday and they had 2 statues of horse legs (at least I hope they were statues because they were pretty tall). We both looked at each other & said “Do you want to make a lamp out of it?” Then we started laughing.

  46. That Pug is Amazing!!!!! I don’t think the cast is even a lamp…. I think they just stuck a shade on it and took a picture… You cant see the cord and there is definitly not enough space between the wall and the table for the cord…

  47. It’s so hard to choose since they’re all so ugly. I think I’m going to have to go with the pug. Something just so wrong about it. I mean I know a light bulb is a sign of genius/idea, but…it’d didn’t quite work in this case.
    ;)

  48. I had to share this with my husband who got a laugh out of them too. It was really hard to choose! Those are some SERIOUSLY ugly lamps. hahaha

  49. Oh my gosh, I am going to go through my house and kiss all my lamps, even the ones I thought had to be the ugliest in the world. I was soooo wrong about that!

  50. This was so hard to choose! Too many creepy lamps, but I had to go with the pug-ly one because every time I see it I laugh hysterically. Yikes!

  51. I loved your contest. What a blast! Too bad I just saw this one today:

    I think it could’ve been a contender.

Speak Your Mind
