Several ideas...

Kitchen: (most-used stuff at-hand, visible, contained)
- Skillets/Pots/Pans we use 85% of time hang @ our legs: instant access. Cost: $0 (we recycled vertical oven racks for grids; bent own S-hooks)
- Knives (used for most every meal): We "build" wooden "racks" w/ slots for knives. Our current one: Maple slats (from scrap maple flooring) attached w/ space to sides of maple butcher block.
- Utensils/Silverware: No drawers for us. Instead most stuff is in 5"-7" containers on countertops: visible, easily accessed, contained. In our last kitchen remodel, I bought cheap ($2) plastic cafeteria silverware containers, then cut holes in countertops & dropped 'em in

Storage solutions?
How about gluing PVC pipes together for brush or tool holders? You can make caddies or mount them. Paint them.
You know how expensive storage shelves can be. You are in luck - right now everybody's getting rid of their TV cabinets (now that they are using flat screens) add a shelf, or use the large portion for your canvas storage. Find them cheap or even free here on CL.
Scope out the free section and see what you can do or feel free to share your ideas.
You can also remove junk drawers from an old dresser for canvas storage. Paint it

Thks for great ideas folks.

So far our most useful additions:
- An indoor gas grill. As another said, it became addicting: we used it 2-5 times/week. It cost us just $120 - research showed it should cost at least $3,000. Huge SS hood and HUGELY powerful fan (total cost $0), restaurant grill ($100 @ auction).
- Cafeteria-style silverware "cups" and flat wood knife/utensil rack BUILT INTO kitchen counters. No need for drawers. I prefer tools always at hand. For less-used utensils, 5" wide, decorated "flower-pot-sized things" on counters.
- Glide-out OR behind-door spice racks. The former we built above fridge for $0 (scraps)
