I also have two plastic storage units from K-mart but most of my daily watercolor supplies used to sit on the table and never seemed to make it to storage before someone walked into the studio. This doesn't make for a neat and orderly appearance (aren't Artists know for Creative Clutter?).
I have spent a long time searching for the perfect solution. One that allows for storage and a work surface. You're work style and personal organizational impulses will dictate which solution works best for you. Here are two suggestions based on my research that should provide a solution for you.
Best Shawn's Watercolor Station
taboret provides quite a bit of storage. Unfortunately, it appears that you
must paint flat. Painting flat doesn't work for me, but many
watercolorists paint flat. If you fall into that category, this may be the
solution for you.
As I kept looking for a better choice I did find my favorite. This taboret solves a multitude of neatness problems in my studio. Knowing the amount of equipment, watercolor paints, watercolor brushes, containers, etc. that I own, I still need two cheap storage units to take care of my clutter.
Best Sitha's Taboret and Easel
Now this taboret really works for me. It folds like a piece of furniture and
doesn't take up as much room as the 8 ft table that I've used. This also hides
much of my equipment, like watercolor brushes, water bottles, paints, etc.
