UGLY LAMP WINNER!

UGLY LAMP WINNER!
We have a winner!  
It was a close race between Pug-ly Lamp, Deerly Departed and Broken Leg Lamp, with each contestant averaging 25% of the votes, but it came down to only one.  The final, grand-prize winner and recipient of a $75 gift card to LightingDirect.com is ….


Broken Leg Lamp!  







 Congratulations on your utter ugliness, Broken Leg Lamp!  (And yes, Broken Leg Lamp is indeed a lamp, as someone conspiratorially whispered in the comments that it might not be so).  This lamp was a memento made for by Brittany’s father-in-law, for her husband Jared after he broke his leg over a decade ago!  Ew!  Well, give your in-laws a hug tonight Brittany, because they just helped you win the coveted title of Ugliest Lamp!





 Second Place was just way too close to call, it changed every minute.  My personal vote was for Raging Man, I laughed out loud every time I looked at him, but dang, it was so hard to choose.   Thanks so much everyone for participating!  I can’t wait til next year!

    My lamps for never looked so good! Hard to understand what some people are thinking but fun contest!

  2. September 9, 2011 / 11:01 PM

    Awesomeness!!!! And.. I love love love contests! lol

  3. September 9, 2011 / 11:03 PM

    The broken leg lamp is like the Leg Lamp from a Christmas Story gone wrong. Congrats!

  4. September 9, 2011 / 11:03 PM

    I had a hard time choosing between the deer legs lamp and the broken leg lamp. Both are really, really ugly! I have to say, it was fun seeing all these lamps. Great contest!

  5. September 9, 2011 / 11:05 PM

    Oh my lordie, that lamp was UGLY! And I thought my great-grandma had some winner in her house. She had a fiber-optic lamp in a melamine box. It was hideous, but nothing compares to these guys…

  6. September 9, 2011 / 11:07 PM

    Oooh! I wanna win the Target gift card. There are so many fun things there I could decorate my house with.

  7. September 9, 2011 / 11:07 PM

    I just liked HomeTalk on FB too.

  8. September 9, 2011 / 11:11 PM

    That lamp… wow. And a target gift card? Yes please! My email is erinelizp@aol.com. Crossing my fingers!

    I think the ugly lamp contest is brilliant. It makes me feel so much better about my own lamps!

  11. September 9, 2011 / 11:13 PM

    I officially “like” hometalk, by the way. 🙂

  12. September 9, 2011 / 11:13 PM

    This is why I stick to easy, space-saving candlestick lamps.

    I would love a Target gift card, too — I have bought many of said candlestick lamps from there!

    My email address is my username, above, with no space, at Gmail.

  13. September 9, 2011 / 11:16 PM

    Those were all ugly lamps, but the cast really takes “ugly lamp” to the next level of ugliness!

  14. September 9, 2011 / 11:16 PM

    These were the most hideous lamps I’ve ever seen. Thanks for all the fun! (And the great giveaway!)

  15. September 9, 2011 / 11:19 PM

    I can’t believe that you had two ugly AND disgusting entries this year. A used cast? Deer feet?? What were these people THINKING?!?

  16. September 9, 2011 / 11:22 PM

    haha the broken leg cast is so gross!
    rwvanvoorhis at gmail dot com

  17. September 9, 2011 / 11:23 PM

    There were certainly some butt-ugly lamps in that little collection!

  18. September 9, 2011 / 11:26 PM

    I voted for all three of the top ugly lamps. I don’t know if that means I have good taste or if I’m just an accidental lemming. I painted my room grey like 2 months before it became the new neutral, but no one knows that. They think I can’t do anything of my own originality! Anyway, a Target gift card would be awesome. I saw some throw pillows there that would match my room perfectly… dang it.

    I voted for the leg lamp, what a champ. I think it was your description of running your hand up it to switch it on and off that made me cringe that did it.

    I’m sure I could come up with about a million uses for an awesome target giftcard!

  20. September 9, 2011 / 11:30 PM

    I love the ugly lamp contest. I would LOVE to win the target gift card!! i could buy so many things there I need!!
    I also love your blog. Very inspiring.

    Loved the ugly lamp contest, some hideous lamps!

  25. September 9, 2011 / 11:39 PM

    I already spend too much time at Target, but a gift card would be GREAT!!! Thanks for the fun lamp memories!

  26. September 9, 2011 / 11:39 PM

    I would love the gift card. I am in Canada, but I shop over the border all the time!

  27. September 9, 2011 / 11:39 PM

    Congratulations Brittany!! And here I am to enter for the Target gift card!! Good luck to everyone!

  28. September 9, 2011 / 11:43 PM

    So…Target gift card+college student=perfect harmony. Haha. No, really, I’d love a Target giftcard.

  29. September 9, 2011 / 11:44 PM

    I agree with sarah.jean!!!

  30. September 9, 2011 / 11:44 PM

    Maybe if she spray painted that leg cast lamp white it would look better!…………No there is no helping that thing!

  31. September 9, 2011 / 11:46 PM

    Deserving winner! Fingers crossed I’ll be shopping at Target soon.

  32. September 9, 2011 / 11:53 PM

    I’m so excited to FINALLY have it set in stone that the cast lamp is indeed a monstrosity! I think my husband might finally believe me now that I’m not crazy for thinking his precious cast lamp is so disgusting. THANKS for such a fun contest! P.S. Raging Man got my vote in the end…oh the horror!! Thanks again!

  33. September 9, 2011 / 11:57 PM

    P.S.S. Good luck to everyone in the Target Gift card contest! As much as I’d love to I won’t be entering it. ALSO, I forgot to mention that when I excitedly told my husband that we had won the contest he grinned and said, “Does this mean we get to take the lamp home to our house now?” NOOOOOOOO! Never gonna happen babe. 🙂

  37. September 10, 2011 / 12:01 AM

    This was so fun to watch — all those lamps were horrible, what a dubious honor for the winner!

  38. September 10, 2011 / 12:03 AM

    The ugly lamp contest is certainly a lot of fun, I can’t believe what kinds of lamps some folks will actually make or buy! The hometalk giveaway sounds like a great opportunity. I really enjoy your blog and check it 2-3 times a day for great ideas, thanks!

  39. September 10, 2011 / 12:03 AM

    Horrible, nasty, fun lamps 🙂 I still think the dog one was horrible, but the cast one is pretty bad!

  40. September 10, 2011 / 12:08 AM

    Target is my happy place.

  41. September 10, 2011 / 12:09 AM

    I so enjoyed seeing the ugly lamps and voting. . and I would enjoy even more a Target gift card!!

  42. September 10, 2011 / 12:11 AM

    This is me leaving a comment because a Target gift card (in any amount) would be really awesome right about now!

  43. September 10, 2011 / 12:13 AM

    That lamp is so ugly!! Glad it won. A Target gift card would be really nice right now.

    Cool giveaway. Awesome lamps. Fantastic website!

  50. September 10, 2011 / 12:20 AM

    This contest just made my week. Every time I looked at these lamps it made me giggle. Let’s just hope that this wont spark a new trend. Can you just imagine a room dedicated to casts and deer parts….(as I shudder)

  51. September 10, 2011 / 12:27 AM

    What a lamp hope i win!

  52. September 10, 2011 / 12:27 AM

    That lamp is nasty ugly! My fave was the deer leg lamp….

  53. September 10, 2011 / 12:29 AM

    That was an amazing ugly lamp roundup. Seriously you do begin to wonder who gave the okay for things like that to be manufactured — like the angry man… in what situation would that work?!

    So glad the broken leg lamp won. That was truly amazing!

  54. September 10, 2011 / 12:29 AM

    Free money at my favorite store?!?! Oh how fabulous would that be…

  55. September 10, 2011 / 12:33 AM

    Like so many others have said, I appreciate my lamps now! haha I really wanted Pug-ly to win, though. But congrats to the winner!

    On another not, I’d really like that $100 gift card! My email is panamasarah91@gmail.com

  56. September 10, 2011 / 12:34 AM

    Well congrats to the winner! That was indeed an ‘interesting’ lamp…
    I really thought the pug lamp would win as it was ‘super interesting’….LOL!
    Thanks for the chance to win ;0)

  57. September 10, 2011 / 12:36 AM

    So many to choose from, indeed a worthy winner. Congrats to ugly leg lamp!

  58. September 10, 2011 / 12:36 AM

    That was really fun…and funny! And I would love to win a gift card! Thanks! ♥

  59. September 10, 2011 / 12:40 AM

  64. September 10, 2011 / 12:47 AM

    Yay for broken leg lamp, I totally voted for that one! Mostly because it is so ugly AND it grossed me out…

  65. September 10, 2011 / 12:47 AM

    Have been enjoying your blog for several months. It helped give me the confidence (or gumption) to try three furniture makeovers myself. Love the ugly lamp contest. So funny. Would love to win that GC. Thanks for blogging.

  66. September 10, 2011 / 12:51 AM

    I would love to have money to spend at target that didn’t come from my own pockets.

  67. September 10, 2011 / 12:51 AM

    I’m glad there is no smell-o-blog for that lamp.

  68. September 10, 2011 / 12:53 AM

    With my first baby comng, I would LOVE to win a Target gift card! Love your blog! Thanks for the opportunity…

  70. September 10, 2011 / 1:15 AM

  73. September 10, 2011 / 1:51 AM

    I want this gift card! I heart Target!

  74. September 10, 2011 / 1:51 AM

    I was torn between the pugly lamp and deerly departed! I asked my 6-year-old his opinion, and we ended up flipping a coin (heads, pugly; tails, deer). 🙂 So much fun!

  75. September 10, 2011 / 1:52 AM

    I just joined HomeTalk!

  76. September 10, 2011 / 1:52 AM

  77. September 10, 2011 / 1:59 AM

    This was such a great contest!!!! Very creative…the lamps that some people made and/or put in their home, well, make you wonder what the rest of their homes looked like 🙂 I love your blog!

  78. September 10, 2011 / 2:02 AM

    I can’t believe dearly departed lost, LOLOLOL

  81. September 10, 2011 / 2:09 AM

    Who in their right mind would think to save their cast and then display in lamp form?! Hysterical! I hope they enjoy their gift. I would like to go shopping at Target soon so please consider my wish.
    {thanks for the giveaway!}

  82. September 10, 2011 / 2:10 AM

    I could hardly decide which of the disembodied leg lamps to vote for, but human disembodied leg is more creepy, so I’m glad it won!

  83. September 10, 2011 / 2:10 AM

    God bless fathers-in-law. This is spectacularly hideous. Also, yay contest!

  84. September 10, 2011 / 2:11 AM

    I never knew there were so many ugly lamps. Crazy! (and so much fun to see.)

  87. September 10, 2011 / 2:30 AM

    Please, please, please, please use your gift certificate and throw away that nasty broken leg lamp! It’s giving us all nightmares … What a fun contest!

  88. September 10, 2011 / 2:40 AM

    Does that lamp stink? LOL. When my son got his cast off we had to tie it in a plastic bag before we threw it in the garbage!!

  89. September 10, 2011 / 2:50 AM

    I wondered about the smelliness of the lamp, also, lol. i was pulling for Deerly Departed- but I suppose the best leg won… *insert groan*

  90. September 10, 2011 / 2:51 AM

    I was kind of rooting for the phantom dancers. Too bad they were knocked out of the competition… so many hideous contenders! 🙂

  105. September 10, 2011 / 4:20 AM

    I luvre me some Tarjay…thanks for the lamp contest it was hysterical! Who knew there was so much hideousness out there?

  106. September 10, 2011 / 4:35 AM

    My son has saved his leg cast for 6 yrs. When cleaning out his closet to paint I ask him if I could throw it away. He said “not yet”, guess I could make him a lamp!!

    I never imagined there were so many ugly lamps in the world! Thanks for sharing such a generous giveaway.

  111. September 10, 2011 / 4:46 AM

    I liked Hometalk on Facebook.

  112. September 10, 2011 / 4:51 AM

    But that creepy baby was so creepy… I mean, in the middle of the night, the broken leg might be a little gross, but that baby would be downright terrifying!

  113. September 10, 2011 / 5:15 AM

    They were all horrible, but I had to vote for Deerly Departed out of respect for the deer that gave its life for our illumination.

    emmtee99@gmail.com

  114. September 10, 2011 / 5:16 AM

    Wow. My ugly lamps are pathetically good-looking in comparison. Congrats to the broken leg lamp owner–honestly? kinda hope you win the Target gift card so you can buy something new. 🙂

  115. September 10, 2011 / 5:49 AM

    Oooh, I’m heart broken the baby zombies didn’t win but equally creeped out by the cast lamp. Well played smelly cast. Well played.

  116. September 10, 2011 / 5:50 AM

    I loved the Ugly Puggly lamp but the cast was a close second for me.

  117. September 10, 2011 / 5:54 AM

    Those were some seriously hideous lamps! I was a bit surprised that the leg cast won; I thought for sure it would be the deer or the pug. Speaking of winning, I’d love to win a Target gift card!

  118. September 10, 2011 / 5:57 AM

    What a great contest! The cast lamp was truly awful, even if the headless dog was my favorite.

  119. September 10, 2011 / 6:38 AM

    I haven’t enjoyed a contest as much as this in ages! More please!

  120. September 10, 2011 / 6:41 AM

    Those were horrible and hilarious. I may have cast lamps and lightbulby dog heads floating around in my dreams tonight 🙂 Thanks for the fun though! Usually I to come here to be inspired, this time it was good just to laugh (and fear whatever else the makers of any of those lamps made)!

  121. September 10, 2011 / 7:05 AM

    Cant wait till next years contest! I am liking hometalk on facebook. But have no idea if i can enter this contest. But here I am 😉 Its all so much fun so i decided to take the long shot.

    I just showed the contestants to my mum. She said: “Oh! Thats a nice one. I like that lamp!” when she saw the Deerly Departed! Hahahaa!

  123. September 10, 2011 / 7:38 AM

    It kind of makes me wonder what people would think of my white pig lamp but I happen to love it.

  124. September 10, 2011 / 7:56 AM

    I bet that leg lamp smells! That was the one I totally voted for too! LOL!!

    Oh, and you can tell me I’ve won the Target gift card at mookytanooky@gmail.com

    😀

  125. September 10, 2011 / 8:24 AM

    I was rooting for the Broken Leg lamp. Wonder if it still has that horrible sweaty cast smell when you turn on the light…ewwwwwww

  126. September 10, 2011 / 9:59 AM

    I don’t live in the US anymore, so please don’t enter me. I’m just here to try to bump your comments up for the rest of your readers. 😉

    I was so rooting for the pugly lamp! I’m devastated.

  127. September 10, 2011 / 10:43 AM

    I love (hate) that broken leg lamp! It’s like the gross version of that leg lamp on A Christmas Story. Of course I see I’m not the only one who thinks so! Love your blog!

  128. September 10, 2011 / 11:02 AM

    You always inspire me… hmmm.. should I dig out my childhood leg cast? I’m sure my mom has it somewhere! lazygreenmama at gmail

  130. September 10, 2011 / 11:53 AM

    Lol the broken leg lamp is just too good. Like really, who would even think to create such a thing? congrats to whomever would read by that lamp! 🙂

  131. September 10, 2011 / 12:26 PM

    I kinda liked the broken leg lamp it was a great way to show off that cast…although I probably would’ve redone it to make it more mordern looking… A little spray paint can go a loooong way! 😉

    A Target gift card would help as I’m in the process of creating my very own “better after” house. steph4011@gmail.com

  133. September 10, 2011 / 12:44 PM

    Ugliest lamp ever!!

    Bummer for deerly departed… that one can’t even be helped with paint like some of the others…

    As for the contest… after random dot com picks me, I’m at eebognar at gmail dot com! (just wishful thinking) 🙂 Thanks Lindsay!

  138. September 10, 2011 / 1:01 PM

    This was such a fun contest! My pick didn’t win, but you really couldn’t go wrong(or right, really) with any of the choices.

    I love me some Tar-jay, and could totally do some damage with $100. Thanks for hosting this terrific giveaway!

    What a fun contest! I DID pick the cast lamp too!!! Mostly because of the horrendousness of the smell of an old cast..I cannot imagine!!!! Rosie at nik2dr2@comcast.net

    I love giveaways and your contest was so much fun!

  155. September 10, 2011 / 1:55 PM

    I still think Raging Man was the ugliest. There was just something about his expression that said it all.

  156. September 10, 2011 / 2:31 PM

    This was just great!! I personally loved both leg lamps- by love I mean they could never enter this house.

  157. September 10, 2011 / 2:33 PM

    Even though my vote didn’t win ( the pugly lamp) I still think the winner lamp is awful. Who would even want a decades old cast sitting on (and I’m sure smelling up) a dresser/nightstand/shelf/sofa table. Congrats and EWWWWWWWWWW!!!

    That broken leg lamp seriously grosses me out. I can almost imagine the sweaty yucky smell that goes along with a cast. It is so wrong and yet that is what makes it so great for the contest! Fingers crossed for the giftcard:) courtneystratton@gmail.com

  236. September 11, 2011 / 5:51 AM

    I haven’t been to target since they opened the new one. A gift card would be great.

    The ugly lamp contest was great. I thought I’d seen some ugly lamps before, but it turns out I’d never seen an ugly lamp before this contest!

  241. September 11, 2011 / 3:00 PM

    What a truly hideous lamp… The thought behind it was nice I suppose, but how could you look at that and think it was a good idea? Love your site, btw. One of the after dressers was the inspiration for me to go out and buy this truly terrible $10 reStore dresser and turn it into something fabulous for my daughter!

    A $100 gift card? Just imagining all the ugly stuff I could replace with that!! YEE HAW!! 🙂

  277. September 12, 2011 / 4:08 AM

    I love lamp! 🙂

  278. September 12, 2011 / 4:33 AM

    Is that lamp also smelly??!!

    That would be sitting in my garage for sure!

  279. September 12, 2011 / 5:13 AM

    As horrible as this lamp is, can you imagine how horrific the room it was in must have looked like so it didn’t sign out like a sore…leg? Or even worse: the SMELL! EWWWW!!!!!

    I just liked Hometalk on Facebook.

    It is hard to believe that most of these were mass produced! So much Fun – thanks’!

  283. September 12, 2011 / 1:00 PM

    While I don’t have an “ugly” lamp, I definitely could use a new one! Thanks for the opportunity – love your site!!!

  284. September 12, 2011 / 1:10 PM

    I had such a hard time deciding between ugly lamps, but the one I ultimately chose won! 🙂

  285. September 12, 2011 / 1:12 PM

    Oh man… I wonder what their expressions were like when dear ‘ole dad handed them his glorious new cast lamp creation. How do you hide THAT kind of horror? Maybe they just laughed hysterically and he thought he’d done good. Uuuuugh.

  289. September 12, 2011 / 2:06 PM

    What a great giveaway! I love the lamps! I can’e believe how ugly some of these are!

  290. September 12, 2011 / 2:10 PM

    Yes – so glad the creepy leg lamp won! And I would LOVE a Target gift card…who wouldn’t? (aafeeney@gmail.com)

  291. September 12, 2011 / 2:13 PM

    The lamp looks like it stinks too. Great contest.

  292. September 12, 2011 / 2:23 PM

    I think that lamp was clearly the best winner.

  293. September 12, 2011 / 2:23 PM

    I “liked” Hometalk on Facebook!

    The Broken leg lamp is kinda like a trophy! I want to know the story.

  296. September 12, 2011 / 2:34 PM

    Loved the contest. Can you imagine someone actually using one of those lamps in their house?? Checked out hometalk. What a cool place. Would love to win something to Target.

    *~* Loved this contest…it started a really fun conversation on Saturday night at a party! There’s some really ugly lamps in this world…there’s needs to be a place to showcase them.*~*

  300. September 12, 2011 / 3:31 PM

    I would love a gift card from Tar-jay! 🙂 Love Hometalk too!

  301. September 12, 2011 / 3:45 PM

    Sooo many ugly lamps! Wow! But thanks for entertaining us with this contest!

  302. September 12, 2011 / 4:15 PM

    I voted for that ugly cast lamp, I’m glad it won! I liked home talk on Facebook as well, and hoping I win the gift card. Missoni for Target comes out tomorrow, and I have my eye on so many things!

  303. September 12, 2011 / 4:17 PM

    I don’t think anyone could have imagined a lamp so ugly!

  307. September 12, 2011 / 4:37 PM

    I hope to use some inspiration from your site to update our ugly lamps!

  308. September 12, 2011 / 4:38 PM

    Yikes. I just can’t get over the cast. It probably had an odor to go with the horrible look.

    Please enter me in the drawing–I’d love to win!

  323. September 12, 2011 / 5:08 PM

    Great contest–wish I had entered my SIL’s dancing ladies with oil dripping down strings lamp–maybe for next contest…..

  324. September 12, 2011 / 5:15 PM

    Wow, that lamp really is ugly. Fun to see what people come up with though.

  325. September 12, 2011 / 5:18 PM

    CONGRATS to the WINNER! Funny, but what a memory! Thanks for the chance to win the Target gift card! 🙂

  326. September 12, 2011 / 5:32 PM

    I don’t know if the target gift card is still in play, but I recently moved into an apartment almost double the size of my old one (old one was 45 sq ft!) and I am trying to outfit it right! Some beautiful accessories from Target would go a long way!

  327. September 12, 2011 / 5:35 PM

    What an ugly lamp. Love the contest!

  328. September 12, 2011 / 5:37 PM

    Great contest! Who knew there were so many uniquely ugly lamps in the world.

  329. September 12, 2011 / 5:38 PM

    That is truly horrifying. But at least you are easing the pain with an awesome give away!

  330. September 12, 2011 / 5:38 PM

    If I ‘had’ to have one, it would be the Cast lamp because it would probably cast a good shadow in my room. The Deer lamp gives me the creeps. Thanks for the fun contest!

  331. September 12, 2011 / 5:42 PM

    Wow, nice lamp!

    I’d love to go to Target with this giftcard! I’d finally be able to shop the way I want to!

    I love TARGET! 🙂

  338. September 12, 2011 / 6:01 PM

    I could smell that lamp through cyberspace and it was not pretty.

  339. September 12, 2011 / 6:03 PM

    I could definitely use a Target gift card! Thanks for hosting the hilarious ugly lamp contest again this year!

  340. September 12, 2011 / 6:05 PM

    I was pulling for the deer leg lamp, but I see the attraction of the winner (if attraction is the right word …). Pick me!

  341. September 12, 2011 / 6:07 PM

    Thank you for having a great contest. I love Target 🙂

  342. September 12, 2011 / 6:14 PM

  343. September 12, 2011 / 6:14 PM

    I fell in love with your blog for all the pretty-instant-gratification after pictures, but these lamps are HIlariously hideous and add a whole other thing to love.

  344. September 12, 2011 / 6:15 PM

    I voted for baby zombies because it made me chuckle but that leg cast lamp is definitely a winner because it had a bonus Yuck factor to make it not only ugly but gross!
    Target gift card? Yes please!

  351. September 12, 2011 / 6:40 PM

    Now that is definitely an ugly lamp! Hubby is unemployed so winning a Target gift card would be a blessing!

  352. September 12, 2011 / 6:47 PM

    Oh my! that is one ugly and disgusting lamp…a used cast?! Gross! But a Target gift card? yes please! my email is: ltatarsky[at]hotmail

  355. September 12, 2011 / 6:56 PM

    Definitely voted for the “ugly leg lamp”. I wonder sometimes what people are thinking when they have those off-the wall type pieces in homes. Makes me think and re-evaluate the stuff I have in my home.

  356. September 12, 2011 / 6:57 PM

    the deer was my favorite ugly lamp.. and hot diggity dog!!!! i would sooooo love a card to target.. oh i could have so much fun with that card!!!

  357. September 12, 2011 / 6:59 PM

    I have loved looking at all these ugly lamps! What does that say about me? LOL The cast one is ugly that’s for sure.

  358. September 12, 2011 / 7:01 PM

    Love the contest…hate the lamp

  359. September 12, 2011 / 7:07 PM

    Yay for Target!

  363. September 12, 2011 / 7:35 PM

    Oh that cast was creepy all right. Can’t even look at it without making the disgusted face. Glad it won! Love the contest!!! Chelsibrea@yahoo.com

  364. September 12, 2011 / 7:36 PM

    Your site is inspiring! Well, maybe not the ugly lamps, but your regular better after postings make me want to whip out the paintbrushes and give something a makeover.

  365. September 12, 2011 / 7:44 PM

    Too funny! Scary, scary lamps!

  366. September 12, 2011 / 7:45 PM

    I love your blog and all your ideas. Hope to be a winner! thanks

    I don’t know if I will ever get those deer toes out of my head. It is funny that some of the ‘top’ picks were appendages.

  371. September 12, 2011 / 8:17 PM

    Wow, that lamp is really ugly … but I don’t know that it really trumps the deer foot, just to mention one.

  372. September 12, 2011 / 8:29 PM

    I love me some Target!

  373. September 12, 2011 / 8:32 PM

    Awful awful lamps, but a fun contest. I just hope to forget them sooner than later. A lovely Target card could help…I could do with some lamp shopping myself. All we have is overhead fan/lamps. LEts just say I’m not a fan of those! Em @ athriftyfind.blogspot.com

  374. September 12, 2011 / 8:36 PM

    That thing is just plain ugly! Glad she gets to pick something new 🙂

  375. September 12, 2011 / 8:38 PM

    That was a fabulous contest – I looked for ugly lamps all weekend!

  376. September 12, 2011 / 8:46 PM

    I laughed at all the lamps, congrats to the winner! And I love Target!

  381. September 12, 2011 / 9:09 PM

    Fun contest! And oh how I would love to spend $200 right now for free 😉

  382. September 12, 2011 / 9:12 PM

    Who ever thought so many people would have such ugly lamps? And be proud to show them off?!

  383. September 12, 2011 / 9:17 PM

    I was torne between the deer foot and the leg lamp. I think both gave me nightmares.

  384. September 12, 2011 / 9:18 PM

    I’m in! And loved the contest!!

  385. September 12, 2011 / 9:18 PM

  393. September 12, 2011 / 9:57 PM

    I can’t believe someone decided to make and of those lamps.

  394. September 12, 2011 / 10:04 PM

    I kept looking for lamps to submit. None even came close! Thank goodness!

  395. September 12, 2011 / 10:10 PM

    Hope I win because I need some grocery money.

  396. September 12, 2011 / 10:24 PM

    I really hope it gets up to 1000 comments! Even if I don’t win, at least I will know I contributed to someone winning some more money! 😛 Good luck everyone!

  397. September 12, 2011 / 10:53 PM

    I never win anything so I’m hoping that this sad comment will be my turnaround. I am still reeling from the lamps and imagining the barrels of laughs at various family reunions all over the country. Or, perhaps, someone knitting a beautiful woolen gift for a loved one under the light of the headless pug lamp!!!!

  398. September 12, 2011 / 11:05 PM

    $100? Woot! Thanks for this great giveaway.

  399. September 12, 2011 / 11:24 PM

    Love your blog. I’d also love $200 at Target:)

  400. September 12, 2011 / 11:44 PM

    I could certainly enjoy a gift card to Target. I loved the ugly lamp contest and we had some really good laughs over a few of them. I am currently browsing my stuff to see what “Better After” project I can submit. I’ve got some afters, but not knowing about your blog, I didn’t take “befores”. You can contact me at my gmail or mineownmineown@aol.com. Love your blog!

  401. September 12, 2011 / 11:47 PM

    Ooo, ooo! Pick me! I lurve me some Target! (I “liked” the page on Facebook too.)

  403. September 13, 2011 / 12:00 AM

    EW! Why would you do that? For goodness sake people, just throw the cast away! I hope I win 🙂 kkscott713@aol(dot)com

  404. September 13, 2011 / 12:06 AM

    I am always a little giddy when I see “Better After” in my e-mail message list. Transformations inspire me! Your wordalicious descriptions are the icing on the re-do cake. A Tar-jay gift certificate wouldn’t be bad, either.

  408. September 13, 2011 / 12:30 AM

    I loved the lamps, but I’m glad you’ll be going back to the fun before/after posts 🙂

    Who would have ever thought that ugly lamps could make me so happy. This contest is hilarious!

  415. September 13, 2011 / 1:30 AM

    Dude, $100 to Target would really go far for my family … BTW that lamp gives me nightmares.

  416. September 13, 2011 / 1:41 AM

    so terrible!!

  417. September 13, 2011 / 1:56 AM

    Does the leg cast lamp smell? Ewww…

  418. September 13, 2011 / 2:41 AM

  422. September 13, 2011 / 4:23 AM

    terrifying….the only way to describe the feeling that “cast ” over me when I viewed that lamp during the contest..I just knew it had to win…but what a roundup!

  423. September 13, 2011 / 7:08 AM

    Great giveaway! Could definitely use a Target gift card this fall!

  424. September 13, 2011 / 11:41 AM

    Loved this contest! I am still horrified that someone not only saved their nasty cast, but went so far as to turn it into a lamp! I would love to win the Target gc, as we are in the middle of a major home renovation and our $5,000 budget is dwindling so fast on boring things like trim and concrete, etc… I promise I’ll post cute afters if I win! (The after might not be cute if I don’t win…)

    Awesome contest! Who couldn’t use a target gift card?!!

  426. September 13, 2011 / 1:03 PM

    That was a fun little contest. That lamp definitely deserved the win! Speaking of winning, I wouldn’t mind winning that Target gift card! 🙂

  427. September 13, 2011 / 1:31 PM

    What a great contest. I think everyone’s major concern should be that Target starts paying attention and accidentally reproduces the ‘winner’ thinking people want one!!

  428. September 13, 2011 / 1:33 PM

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  429. September 13, 2011 / 1:34 PM

    I thought I had ugly lamps. These made mine look fabu. I hope I win!

  431. September 13, 2011 / 3:29 PM

    I love your blog! And I want that Target gift card!

  432. September 13, 2011 / 4:31 PM

    Wow, that was a lot of ugly/weird/disturbing!

  433. September 13, 2011 / 4:31 PM

    That lamp deserved to win. 🙂 Great contest as always and C’MON NUMBER 1000!!!!

  434. September 13, 2011 / 4:36 PM

    Oh man, that was the worst lamp ever! I love contests!!

  435. September 13, 2011 / 5:06 PM

    Loved the ugly lamp contest! 🙂 So fun to see all of those ugly lamps!

    Great giveaway! larajlind at gmail dot come

  437. September 13, 2011 / 5:49 PM

    I can’t believe zombie babies had the lowest amount of votes…they creeped me out. I feel like they could write a Goosebumps book based off that lamp! Do they still write Goosebumps books? Anyway, Target yay!

  438. September 13, 2011 / 6:43 PM

    I’d love to win! (and I enjoyed the ugly lamps too!)

  439. September 13, 2011 / 7:10 PM

    WOW. I cannot imagine an uglier lamp! Glad it isn’t at my house!

    What a fun contest.

  440. September 13, 2011 / 8:35 PM

    that was a great contest…I can’t believe people actually have these lamps…LOL..

  441. September 13, 2011 / 8:38 PM

    Makes me want to go find an ugly lamp to do over!

  442. September 13, 2011 / 8:53 PM

    I just became a member of HomeTalk….great website…

  443. September 13, 2011 / 8:53 PM

    I moved in May and am too broke to decorate my new house. 🙁 Target gift card would be so awesome!

    Loved the contest, don’t think the broken leg shoulda won, but that’s just me. In other news…I TOTALLY think I should win the Target gift card. My child needs some new clothes. No really, I swear. hahaha

  460. September 14, 2011 / 7:10 AM

    Great contest and I think the best man, er, lamp, won. It was close between the deer feet and the cast. There’s something gruesome about these creations that takes them beyond ugly. Your contest has been howlingly funny!
    best, nadia

  461. September 14, 2011 / 10:05 AM

    What a fun contest! I can’t find the runners-up, though…would love to see ’em!

    I found this site through your guest appearance on Cake Wrecks, and have been completely inspired to try out a project. Haven’t picked the project, but I’m working on it.

    Thanks!

    Hope I win the gift card:

  470. September 14, 2011 / 4:21 PM

    Ah, I really wanted the deer lamp to win. It’s one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen turned into furniture.

    On the other hand, a Target gift card would make all my disgust go away!

  474. September 14, 2011 / 5:11 PM

    I could do some damage with $200 at Target!

  475. September 14, 2011 / 5:16 PM

    By far the ugliest lamp ever.

  476. September 14, 2011 / 5:41 PM

    Can’t imagine why some of those lamps were ever created in the first place!
    Awesome giveaway!

  479. September 14, 2011 / 6:14 PM

    Wow! That’s a heck of a lamp!

  480. September 14, 2011 / 7:59 PM

    Yes! My vote for ugliest lamp one. I don’t even want to THINK about the dead skin cells in that lamp. *GAG* 😉 C’mon 1,000 comments!

  481. September 14, 2011 / 8:51 PM

    oh I could really use a Target card! We get everything there!

  482. September 14, 2011 / 9:26 PM

    I voted for the Broken Leg lamp both times. It is SO UGLY!!

    Anyway – HomeTalk seems like a great concept!

  488. September 15, 2011 / 10:13 AM

    I truly think this year’s lamp outdid last year’s by a mile- that is spectacularly hideous. 🙂

  489. September 15, 2011 / 12:24 PM

    Okay, these lamps were hilarious, and horrid! thanks!

  490. September 15, 2011 / 12:25 PM

    I def. thought the leg lamp was the ugliest of them all, but I have to admit that I did make a Christmas ornament out of a picture painted on my arm cast many years ago. I have since thrown it away. 😉

  500. September 16, 2011 / 3:48 AM

    I liked their fb page. So glad I did! I have already found fun things.

  501. September 16, 2011 / 6:57 AM

  505. September 16, 2011 / 5:32 PM

    I can’t believe that all these lamps were actually purchased…let alone made in the first place. These definitely made me laugh! Great contest!

  506. September 16, 2011 / 5:52 PM

    Shop at target weekly, would LOVE a gift card!!!

  507. September 16, 2011 / 7:38 PM

    I voted for that one!!! Hurray!!!!

  513. September 17, 2011 / 12:42 AM

    I believe that the broken leg lamp won due to its gross factor. I remember when I had my arm cast taken off (when I was 8) and it had quite a funny smell to it.

  514. September 17, 2011 / 12:53 AM

    yay! a giveaway! And I still think that Unicorn lamp needs an honorable mention.

  515. September 17, 2011 / 2:33 AM

    I love contests! Especially one with a Target giftcard… 🙂

    Saw a lamp at Target tonight that certainly would not look “ugly” in my office re-do!
