Made this lamp with a vintage coconut monkey my daughter gave me for at Christmas time. Been sitting on him for a while wondering what I could do with him. A little inspiration, Home Depot lamp kit, and a funky shade from Retromoddesign and VOILA! He's old and a little dry rotted. Plan to use a low wattage cool bulb with it. If anyone has any suggestions on a fire retardant I could treat him with it would be much appreciated. Probably overkill, but it would be the responsible thing to do. We love our monkeys!

Your welcome.
That Mamas and the Papas thing was for another post.
Was a mistake to put it here.
Too funny!

Need to cut back on the LSD! Joking.

Finally got around to treating this little guy with the Flamex fire retardant. Tonight was the official lighting of the Monkey in our little grass shack.
