I picked up some paint racks from Impudent Mortal and love them, but they aren't enough. I've filled two and still have more dropper bottle paints, plus other odd shaped ones. I have a rack for my brushes/tools, but it is often overflowing.
To top it off, my hobby area is a corner of the dining room table. So that means when the kids come over for dinner, I have to clean everything off and get it out of the way - not a trivial feat at this point. (It really came home when we just got a new table)
I had seen this kickstarter before, but it wasn't until I was moving all the crap with the new table that it really hit me how useful this might be.
The idea is modular storage components that fit into units that hang from the wall. Each wall unit holds four modules - each side holds either two vertical or horizontal units.

There are also a couple of kickstarter deals as well. For every four modules you pledge for, you will get a free wall unit (of the same material). Also, if you pledge $100 or more then shipping is free (in the US only, overseas shipping is just too expensive).
I don't have any wall space to actually HANG the wall units, but still being able to have a place for everything, and then have a place to put the modules should make it quite a bit easier to keep my place neat. I figure that when I have to move it, everything can go back in the wall units which can fit on the side table.
I've been thinking I could put some velcro strips on the sides of each of these - and then close them up against each other (so nothing can fall out) - then all they would need is a handle to carry everything.(or just to easily store it).
This is one that you will want to pledge early on (the first 50 pledges got a free pair of dice) - because they will be manufacturing and shipping these in backer order! Take a look and see if this will help get your hobby area in order.
Because it is all fun and games . . .
