Cat Proofing the Sewing Room

Some of us don't like our kitty to help us sew. Mine has fairly long hair and will immediately lie down on any piece of fabric I lay down. Since I heat with wood, I needed a way for the air to circulate to my sewing room and yet keep Mr. Kiki out. So, I hung a piece of garden lattice on hinges with a simple screen door lock toward the top so I can reach it from both sides, and added a nice silk flower trim!

Looks good; I might try that to keep my dogs out of the computer room. Question....aren't cats supposed to be good climbers?

I have a friend who put a whole all screen door to keep her cats out of a room.She decorates it for the different seasons.

Thank you all for your comments. My kitty is too fat to climb this or at least doesn't seem to have the ambition. He did try to open it from the bottom with his paw but was unsuccessful and when it snapped back, it scared him and he hasn't tried again. It has truly worked out great for me and I'm thinking of twining some more greenery in there somewhere.

That is so pretty. I think I will have to give that a try because my 2 cats and my 2 kids love playing with the pedal on my sewing machine and they like to play with my ribbon box and unravel it all. lol This might just help to keep all of my lil rascals out, but still in plain sight.

I've used a screen door, that way air still circulates and it looks cool. You can choose fancy or plain, I went with a very plain one, I always get compliments.
