New spaces, good habits
I have had a hard time with the guilt of not providing my second child with all the benefits the first had. By the time she was three, my firstborn had her own (huge) room with her own private desk, chair, art supplies, shelves, the whole nine. He's never had that. Partly because they shared her space, partly because as a boy / baby / separate person, he never has been much for the care and tending of his belongings, art or otherwise. Lately, we have been on a give ~N~ a shot kick. So far, he's thrilled to have his own space and responsibilities. If it works, I will be very happy to have another work station. If it doesn't, we have another shelving unit for ~D~'s stuff to be put away as he moves into the big boys' room.
