Tool Storage Ideas for Newly-Combined Household?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are having a difficult time combining households after moving into my townhouse. The finished basement/spare room is currently a disaster that is strewn with random boxes of tools, painting supplies, gardening supplies, workout equipment, etc. They take up a lot of room and unfortunately our tiny garage is stuffed full with my SUV and our bikes. You have listed a lot of posts on how to organize craft rooms, but how about discreetly organizing manly crafts indoors? Random mismatched hammers and drill bits don't look nearly as pretty on display as colorful yarns, and shoving them all into a closet makes it impossible to find anything when you need it.
