Day #15 Scary Monkey Lamp!

A new addition to my Halloween decor!  This lovely lamp was $1 in a Facebook Buy and Sell group.

I thought it had some spooky potential, so I snapped it up for a buck!  Funny thing is, there were a few others who were very disappointed they missed it.  

(Note:  I forgot to take a before photo, but luckily I still had the photo posted by the seller)

I got out my can of black spray paint and set to work of making it even spookier than the creepy monkey already was!  The lamp shade was dirty, dusty and smelled like smoke.  I gave it a quick vacuuming, then sprayed the shade with the same black paint.

I love it!

After the base dried, I gave it a little wash of white paint to make the details stand out.

He sort of reminds me of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz!  Spoooooky!


  1. That looks like a collectors item! And it DOES look like the flying monkeys!!! Deal!

  2. I was always afraid of those flying monkeys! Eek!
