What would you like to have in your scrap room or space that you don't have? I'm lucky enough to have a scrap room, but I would love to have a TV in there. I would also like for my family to stop putting their stuff in my space. So, what do you wish for in your scrappy space.
A source of endless inspiration -- I picture it being like Wifi and just sort of streaming through the air directly into my head.
A TV. My room is open to the entire downstairs of my house, but I can't really hear the TV from my room, and I certainly can't see it. I'd love just a small flatscreen (about 17" would be perfect) so I could have something on while I'm working.
I too am lucky to have a scrap room/studio. I'm waiting on cabinets/counters, wall shelving and a baker's rack for projects in progress. A new smart TV is on my list too.
What I would LOVE (but don't think I'll ever get) would be a basement powder room (at least), a bar sink or farmhouse sink for washing hands and/or paint brushes and someone like Alice from the Brady Bunch to clean my house, do the laundry and cook for my family so I can be down in my studio making stuff all day!
ETA: I also wish the flooring wasn't carpet. With pets, a kid and hopefully frequent visitors coming to scrap once my room is done, it would be easier to clean up anything else.
I am fortunate to have a scrap room. It functions well, mostly thanks to my Costco project table and other little furniture items gathered from around the house. I would wish for it to be decorated in a beautiful, creative, inspirational Bohemian style. And the shelf unit I saw at Costco the other day to match the project table. And a die-cutter/embosser since I would now have room for it on my new shelf unit. And a TV. And hardwood flooring. And someone to clean out all of the non-art related items in the walk-in closet so that I can store photos in there. That's about it.
I have a room, and last year I moved into a bigger room when my youngest ds moved out. But I'm already running out of space! I'd like more flat surface area so I can set up a die cutting station. I'd also like a bigger closet to store photo boxes, extra albums, and things I'm not currently using. I'm putting these things on my wish list for my next house!

A carpenter to build a custom desk and organization system. While I'm dreaming, I'd like that carpenter to be Sam Heughan because I'm currently in love with him. And now I'm just being completely inappropriate! HA!
I can see this custom designed space in my head but soon the bulldozers will be dozing our home to make way for a light rail train station...hoping for a dedicated craft space where-ever we end up next. A view of Puget Sound or Mt. Baker would be pretty wonderful...
Well I got my own space when we moved last month, but lost it pretty much even before we got unpacked. The upstairs is all open loft and an extra bathroom. I have one half and hubby had the other for his games. Well the nephew ended up moving in with us for a bit and has taken over that area....
He was told when he moved in that because my stuff is up there at any time I could be up there working. But I feel like I'm invading his space if I'm up there and he comes home so I usually end up going back downstairs.

Since my first wish would be to simply have a room, my list is rather long. It includes (but is not limited to):
this scrap table a lot more storage (preferably drawers - I like thinks out of sight, but hate dealing w/lids) an ergonomic chair enough room for stations: card making, embossing, die cutting, stamping, etc. TV w/cable & dvd player mini fridge for my goodies great natural light a sink would be nice, but not a necessity room to set up tables for when my friends join me
and while we're at it, a hot carpenter to build it, a housekeeper & an unlimited amount of money so I can order take out whenever I'm in the zone and don't feel like cooking
That should do it. If I think of anything else, I'll come back & edit.

My space is called "The Cave" it's a small pantry type place that has out electrical box and hot water heater in it. No windows. No power outlets. A crappy light. So when I need power I walk into my kitchen and put whatever up.
Wish list: power outlets lol...windows...peg boards...a U shaped table...nice big trash can...shelves (I do have a good bit actually but I always want/need more!) place for a TV.
My space will be a joint class room/craft room. I would love a plan. I don't know if I want to do built in cabinets -- think of all the storage, or shabby chic -- think of all the pretties. I need better lighting and more outlets regardless. I'll also probably have to use the basement for storage of less used items.
I'd also take Ashley's wifi endless inspiration!
My "if I had the money" want is an addition off the back of the house to add a dining area, a small family room with library, and a large craft area with room for sewing, kids craft items, painting supplies, and paper craft items. I have it in my head, it would be so useful and the view is the woods in the back.

I need a shelf space outside of my scrap area to house my completed albums. I've got an armoire (not the cool craft armoire). It has a tilt out desk area with a power source, so it does work well for me. I've got 2 shelves of that armoire full of my completed albums and I'd like to move the albums elsewhere and put my other random containers onto those shelves. This way, all of my supplies will be in front of me. It should be a quick fix, but I really can't find a better home for my albums.
In a few months when we move into the next house, I'll finally get my craft room! The only things I see it needing right now are a new carpet and an overhead light. There's a rickety fan over where I intend to put my table, and I'm going to ask DH to change it out for me. Beyond that, all I need is some paint
There's no view of the beach, or of anything really because it's in an attic, but I'm going to make it cheery and bright.
