DH has this bo... Lamp.  It's one of those cool monster green deals that he could not seem to refuse buying.  It's a rarely used decorative item, but he wanted to keep it on display to show off to his friends.

I however, did not want it out for unexpected visitors or kids to see.  We compromised.

I bought a nasty pink shade from the thrift store, then stripped it down.  A few coats of black and green paint made it look like it matched the... lamp. I then printed off some Frankenstein art from the internet to go with out not so typical decorating theme.


And with a few coats of white glue and he has a... lamp that I am not embarrassed to have in the living room.

That's so awesome. I have one that I always want to say is a vase. Very similar to that, but larger. This is such a great idea that I kinda wanna turn my lamp into a lamp. Could wire it through the and add a shade. It's so pretty but just sits in our closet.

Thanks so much for posting this. It's just awesome. Plus I love frankenstein stuff.

What an excellent idea. Surely now a... lamp to be proud of. (I'm a sucker for anything Frankenstein-related, too.)

Haha!  That's an excellent way to hide your "lamp" in plain sight.

hahaha I loved this! Not only was it freaking cool looking but it made me laugh, thinking of the scene in Grandma's Boy when Rob Schneider throws a "lamp" and yells "You forgot your smoking lamp!!"

looks very awesome Wink
