After much debate, I decided to move my scrap room from the nice large open dining room to a small spare bedroom, because of one small feature - a DOOR. I've found that I just can't scrap with 5 cats in the room, LOL.
This is the view when standing against the west wall. You can see my "kitchen island" in the foreground, my desk on the far wall, and a tiny part of the beautiful storage shelf thing my hubby built on the far left. The window is to the left, closet and entrance to the right, and storage units behind me.
