Road Trip: Collin and I Run to Mary Jo’s and This Is What We Found

What to do on a dreary Monday? Head to Mary Jo’s Fabric Store in G-Town is what! My friend, decorator and fabric expert Collin Haglund and I set out in search of fabric samples for her clients and inspiration for me.

This is some of what we found:

Spruce up a chocolate-brown couch with this awesome upholstery weight fabric. Use it on anything from pillows to an ottoman. Be crazy brave and put it on a couch. . .designer heaven.

I took this gray and yellow chevron fabric and cut 2 1/2 yards. Collin and I are going to make partial slip covers for the dining room chairs at some point soon but thought for now I would do this:

PS: The fabric looks even better in person. The fluorescent lights and camera flash are the culprits.Oh and go to http://maryjos.com/ for information and directions.
