That is extremely tidy! That tribune rack looks like its been made by a professional, correct?

Correct! Bought them some 10 to 12 years ago from Miniaturicum but I can't find them anymore, they are a very basic construction

edit: a bit more explanation; first photo paintrack from miniaturicum; second photo how I made my workbench so the paint racks will fit; third photo paint drawer out; fourth photo intersection (drawer for paints I use regularly).

I second Balckwolf's idea. Tried, tested and used by the majority of gamers and painters alike.

Drunkendwarf, that is an excellent layout.

I have 2 of the Miniaturicum 120 bottle Foundry/Coat d’Arms racks that flank 6 of the Warbases 45 Vallejo/Reaper dropper bottle wall racks.

A couple more Warbases racks are in the post to go in a Ikea Helmer 6 drawer unit.
Wargamers do it on a table.

This is what I use. I am also converting the Foundry bottles over to needle nose droppers and 33% more on the racks!

Indeed! Those old CdA bottles just kill paint, the rims are magnets for drips amd they are a paint to close and clean over time.

Bigger bottles (airbrush, craft and GW) on turntable holders I bought long ago. The foundry and Vallejo are in RUB's.  Keeps the desk fairly organized when I actually remember to put things away.

I made my own rack in a drawer near to my painting table.

The actual rack is made of plastic window ledges (the right word?)  look here: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B072PSPP23/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2X0RFZ9ESZCZ4&psc=1 
and plastic corner strips  look here:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00ZXPR0EG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Works perfectly well.
And as the paints are stord in drawers and the table is a drawer as well, my man cave can be cleaned up easily.

Cheers

I have one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Iris-Ohyama-135695-Shelving-transparent/dp/B0719Q95SB with wheels on it. I 3D printed a bunch of holders to store them upside down after years of putting paint on the lids. Either way worked great and they fit vallejo paints like a glove. I have 4 drawers full of paint and 2 drawers for various tools. Being on wheels makes it ideal to move where it's needed or use it as a table away from the desk. If you only have a desk to work on or even less it's not taking up space on it like a lot of the solutions here, which it right for my set up.
