Our son needed storage for his Lego collection (especially after he inherited his father/uncle's 30 year old collection!) and display space for his creations. We looked at many options, including some plastic drawer units from Wal-mart/Target, but then we found this Midsund 4 drawer chest in the AS-IS room for $30. It's sturdy, stable and well-suited. Shallow drawers are perfect for base plates and small creations that he doesn't want to disassemble. The bottom drawers have plastic shoe boxes filled with different types of Lego - minifigs, wheels/gears, etc., train tracks...
There are many other IKEA chests and storage options that would work for Lego - I think zeuss also had to plan for her son's Lego collection in this thread: Here are my ideas for son's bedroom (her son's room puts mine to shame!)
Yeah - both kids rooms are painted. Each year on their birthdays I paint them a new 'Thing'. Alex's room started out as a Jungle room, but he's had me add an anteater and the blue thing behind the Lego cabinet is a Pleiosaur. Elizabeth's room is sort of backyard animals, but one year she wanted a dancing slinky and an elephant (where DO they get these things?).
I'll see if I can find some pictures if you're interested.
