If you need a tidy solution for out-of-the-way storage, simply create a divider to put in a shallow drawer. Pick up one of those sturdy plastic set of drawers from your local Walmart or similar store, and customize it to fit your size and style of paint containers. The clear material used here is said to be “flexible cutting boards” but you could even use cardboard, posterboard, or foam core board — or any material you have on hand that will be rigid enough to create dividers, yet able to be cut and trimmed.
If the visible side of your jars or bottles does not show the color of paint it contains, just use the paint to fix that — paint the lids, the labels, or just paint & stick on adhesive labels like those little white circles or squares that can be found in office supply aisles.
Who said storage can’t be fun or creative?
