I hope I'm posting this in the right place and I hope this question isn't too stupid, but... Can you do basically that same things with a serger, as you can a sewing machine? Or would I need both? Is a serger for heming only?
I forgot it was Valentine Day, so I made this shelf for my boyfriend last minute today. Its kind of like the yardstick shelf. I painted a yardstick black and just found two triangle wood pieces at Wal-Mart in the craft section. I just put on wood glue plus nailed and stapled them to the yardstick.
I needed another light in my room so my mom gave me this old floor lamp. It was a little ugly, so I just ripped out red, black, or white (to match my room at the time) magazine pages and wrapped them around the pole and stuck them with black electrical tape.
OMGSOSWEET. I totally spraypainted my headboard gold and glued on some little mirrored tiles (Dollar Store), some pretty heart-shaped stick-on jewels (Dollar Store), and a couple of peacocks (Dollar Store).
