I'M SO HAPPY YOU ARE HERE!
My name is Julia Fischer and I live in the historic district of downtown McKinney, TX. I’m married, have two awesome children, and four lovable rescue dogs. I’m an entrepreneur and small business owner.
I also volunteer much of my time fostering dogs for Tzu Zoo Rescue, and The Cavalier Rescue.
About my brand
I have a boutique style shop that caters to the creative home. Shangri-La Lane is focused on interior items such as home décor, DIY products, furniture paint, and vintage furniture pieces. I also provide DIY tutorials and classes.
Iron Orchid Designs
I’ve been an authorized stockist for Iron Orchid Designs (aka IOD) since 2016, when the line was developed to change the DIY and up-cycling industry. Their innovative products can be used in numerous ways on a variety of mediums, such as furniture, walls, tile, wood, fabric and more. You can easily transform the look of anything using their Transfers, Décor Stamps, or Moulds.
Wise Owl Paint
I became a retailer for Wise Owl Paint in 2017 and while I love everything currently in the line, I’m most excited about their newest product, “One Hour Enamel.” This is truly a revolutionary paint with a built-in Top Coat and a dry/recoat time of one hour, leaving a stone-hard finish in an eggshell sheen. This means you can paint and transport your furniture pieces in a matter of hours without worrying about the finish being damaged. Not only that, you can re-do all of your kitchen cabinets and hang them back up in a matter of hours, not days or weeks! There is nothing else like “One Hour Enamel” on the market, and I’m thrilled to be able to offer it in my shop.
I teach people how to use all of my DIY products through one-on-one instruction and group workshops. For anyone that is not local, I have provided lots of tutorials on my website and am always available to answer questions via phone or email.
I started Shangri-La Lane in 2011 as a home-based furniture refinishing business. In 2012 I moved into the Frisco Mercantile, and I recently added an online shop to reach even more people.
Shangri-La Lane has been featured on WHAS11 ABC’s Great Day Live, Country Living Magazine, FreshStyle Magazine, VoyageDallas, and the Frisco Award Program.
