Magazine feature… yay!

So you may remember when we were prepping for a professional photo shoot in Kelli’s bright & cheery craft room, (and went into panic mode which included tearing out the carpet, sanding down the concrete floors then painting them in chunky yellow stripes. Phew! LOL)

Awesome mag full of craft spaces! | via

Well it all went off without a hitch and that mad rush to finish Lolly Jane’s official headquarters once and for all was getting all gussied up for its recent publication in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s Creative Spaces magazine, Volume 3 this month:

Creative Spaces Magazine Vol.3 Cover... look inside for a 4-page feature of our craft room! :)

This issue displays over 200 photos of 152 ideas to create an inspiring space that is jam packed with clever craft tool supply organization, storage solutions and even DIY tutorials to help you spruce up your own work area by these creative folks:

If you want a sneak peek of some of the gorgeous goodness inside Volume 3 of Creative Spaces, just take a looksie! ;)

Creative Spaces Magazine- awesome craft spaces!

Here’s a peek at our craft room again, in case you’ve missed it…

Such a fun craft room with striped painted floors!

The monogram L is for Lolly Jane, I borrowed this frame turned chalkboard from Kelli’s ombre wall and just love it in this space with my freehand chalk art!

Fun "Happiness is Craftiness" chalkboard in a cute, colorful craft room!

We nabbed these Target chairs on super clearance for $30/each.  We took them back to Target after the photo shoot, though- they were super cute but I love my big comfy ones (you can see a peek of them in my entryway) and we are planning to paint them.  Yes, paint fabric chairs.  It’ll rock, don’t be worried… the floors turned out okay, didn’t they?! ;)

Eclectic craft room, so colorful and fun! @lollyjaneblog

Kelli’s favorite thing about this whole room are these pretty floral curtains (see the birds?) from World Market that our talented seamstress sister modified to fit the space by simply adding ruffles + lace. They definitely add a feminine touch to the shabby distressed projects throughout the room!

Add white ruffles to these pretty World Market curtains to add length and customization! @lollyjaneblog {}

Here’s a shot of the million dollar pin of Kelli’s herringbone painted bookcase that I swear keeps this here blog afloat in Blogland! This is where it all started, after all! ;)

Paint a bookcase a herringbone stencil, use mason jars, crates and suitcases for storage!

And for EVERY. SINGLE. TUTORIAL. relating to this fun space, be sure to click on our “craft room” tag that has a boatload of tutorials so you can create your piece of Lolly Jane’s space in your house (like our vintage numbered crates, burlap doily bunting, decorative vent cover and more!) A BIG thanks to Creative Spaces mag for including us in this fun roundup of creative spaces! :)

  • Amy W - So so so very thrilling to be published. And that amazing craft room is what brought me here almost a year ago! One question, have you filled in the herringbone wall with more “stuff” or does it really still look that organized and lovely?ReplyCancel

    • lollyjane - Haha Amy, the bookcase is specifically organized and actually does stay that neat, (surprisingly!) Each suitcase carries fabric + scrapbook paper, the crates carry craft tools + paint and the jars house washi tape, buttons + smaller accessories/items. The table… now that, my friend, is another story! The where-we-work table is almost always full of craft supplies scattered about but I have to say, clean up is a snap! ;) Thanks for joining us on this journey a year ago! You’re SO sweet!!

    • lollyjane - Thank you, Connie! Scored them at World Market, cut them in half, surged them and added ruffles for length!ReplyCancel

  • Heather B. - Lovely space. I find it funny the pressure we can put on ourselves to have things be perfect. I wish you would have kept the chairs that you prefer and actually use in your space- even if the decor chairs were fabulously cute. I love the stencil pattern design not he back of your shelving wall and painting your floor–I might like to do this in my house.ReplyCancel

    • lollyjane - SO true, Heather! We love our old chairs and thought the pop of mustard on the new ones would brighten up the space but they were just too small… we do love that color so we’ll be painting our old ones that same hue. (We should have done them prior to the shoot! Oops!) Cutting Edge Stencils has a huge variety of stencils if you decide to do it- it can easily transform a space! Thanks for popping by :)ReplyCancel
