How about the metal wire rack/cube system?
I bought one from Target, I believe, for probably less than $20, I use it in my laundry room, but I've seen pics on here of them being used for storage. If you're worried about dust you could always cover it with some pretty material??

I guess it depends how much paper you have and how much you expect to grow. I once had a paper cart thingy I got at Target that was wire, and it came with a cover so that your paper wouldn't get dusty. You could also get the paper trays you just put on your desk/table, depending if you want to "waste" table space on that or if you have room to put a paper cart on the floor.

my craft space is in also in my living. I purchased a set of cube shelves from Ikea for about $60 and it actually holds all my stuff. I have fabric cubes on the bottom row and then everything is neatly organized. i have some of my little embellies stashed in jars sitting on top of my desk.

But if you don't mind spending a little time putting things together, Ikea is a good place for furniture with storage.

I'm thinking about getting those cubes with the fabric drawers too. As right now, everything is in the living room.
