I'm so happy you are here!

Hi, I’m Julia, and I’m a creative soul with a passion for art, DIY, and decorating on a budget. I started my DIY business, Shangri-La Lane LLC, in 2011, and it has been a journey of creativity, resourcefulness, and dedication.

My love for DIY and decorating began when I moved into my first apartment and realized I couldn’t afford to buy all the furniture and decor I wanted. So, I began scouring thrift stores and garage sales for pieces to refurbish and repurpose. This sparked my interest in upcycling and decorating on a budget, and it eventually led me to start my own DIY business.

In addition to my love for DIY and decorating, I also have a big heart for animals. I volunteer as a foster for a local dog rescue group, providing temporary homes for dogs in need. It’s been a rewarding experience, and I love being able to give back to the community in this way.

At Shangri-La Lane LLC, I offer a range of DIY classes and workshops, including furniture painting and stenciling, as well as workshops for Iron Orchid Designs products and decoupage paper. I’m always looking for new ways to inspire creativity in others and to help people make their homes beautiful and inspiring spaces.

Through my business, my passion for DIY and decorating, and my volunteer work with animals, I’ve become a true inspiration to those who are looking to add beauty, creativity, and compassion to their lives. Whether you are a seasoned DIYer or a beginner looking to get started, I’m the perfect guide to help you unleash your creativity and make your home a place you love.

About My Brand


A boutique that caters to the creative home market. Shangri-La Lane LLC is focused on interior items such as home décor, DIY products, furniture paint, and furniture pieces. I also provide DIY classes and design inspiration.

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, Moulds, or Paint Inlays.

DIY Classes

I teach people how to use all of my DIY products through one-on-one instruction and group workshops. You can view all of the available workshops under the Events tab on my website. 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 LLC in 2011 as a home-based furniture refinishing business. In 2012 I moved into a Mercantile, and I recently opened a brick-and-mortar shop for in-person classes.
