|I found this fabric on the MaryJo site and ordered a sample. Unfortunately, in real life, it's much darker-it looks like a regular old tan color from the other side of the room. So disappointing-I guess that's why you order a sample instead of purchasing 20 yards. I plan on slipcovering a family room sofa and want something that won't show every smudge and stain. Have you slipcovered/upholstered anything recently with a fabric you love? I need some inspiration and only have a local Joanns.|

|No slipcovers here but I have been playing with upholstery. I got the fabric for this one from Country Curtains; it was $30.50 per yard on sale for $3.99, and it's fabulous. They are sold out of 2 colorways, including mine, but they have it left in a neutral, which may be what you want. I have linked it below. I used the back side of this 'Belvedere' fabric facing out. |
I also recommend Barn Fabric Center, as Gary usually sells his 'drapery' weight fabrics for $5.99 a yard and ships very quickly. http://www.barnfabriccenter.com/
I bought the linen to re-do this antique chair from the Barn. Modelling it after this Restoration Hardware one for $1695. http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod80194&categoryId=cat280016
During/almost after! Please try to ignore that awfully messy background.
I can't recommend eBay for fabric enough, if you have the time to scroll through hundreds - thousands of options. I have bought so much fabric there, at incredibly good prices, as well as from FabricGuru.com.
