I'm a huge fan of IKEA's Asker line of containers for storing children's art supplies. The chubby white containers are good looking and affordable. And while I like the minimalist matte white they come in, this mod podged version looks great as well.
We found this papered set of Asker containers over at IKEA Hackers and have bookmarked the idea in case we decide a break from the white is needed. All you need is some pretty paper, a bottle of Mod Podge and a little patience. Check out IKEA Hackers for all the details.
