Attention! This is the final push for Ugly Lamp Contest submissions! If you have (or know of) a lamp that possesses an ugliness so extreme your eyes wither up into little pruneballs at the mere sight of it, then what are you waiting for? Get a picture of that thing to me ASAP at BetterAfter(at)live.com! Today is the deadline, but I’ll let you squeak by if you submit a picture over the weekend.
I’ve been sifting through a hearty crop of truly terrible submissions, but I don’t know if we’ve reached the pinnacle of pure ugliness yet. Our winner might still be out there. Get your pics in soon, there is a $100 gift card on the line, man! More info can be found right here.
And now, a sweet little camper makeover by Dawn and her daughter Meghan. Dawn says “After attending an outdoor summer wedding which featured renovated vintage camping trailers used for food and beverage stations, my daughter became somewhat obsessed with the idea of obtaining a camper of her own to renovate. A few months later my husband and I received a phone call from said daughter announcing she had purchased a trailer which needed “a little work” and would we be willing to help her renovate the camper? I’m afraid my husband and I must have made all of our DIY projects look a bit too easy because what we found when we visited the camper for the first time was many, many hours of work ahead of us.”
Mom and Dad of the Year alert! They dove in and helped Meghan transform it into the happiest lil’ camper ever. It almost makes me want to go camping! Almost. If they can guarantee flush toilets and working showers and no spiders, snakes or killer bears, and wifi, then yes. Sign me up.
(Before pics are not so great, but hey, that’s what makes for an even better after, right?)
