I saw this at Jerry's Artarama Art Bar last week to hold colored pencils....It is cut tubes of PVC pipe glued together in holder. I thought it was really cool and could be adapted to hold bruses or paint tubes too,

DIY Colored Pencil Cabinet: Have you ever seen those massive sets of drawers big Faber-Castell sets come in? This is the DIY version, which can hold as many pencils (or pens, markers, or pastels) as you need!
Pencil Case for 120 Pencils - I'm very happy with this case - got it on sale for less than $20! :) It will hold colored pencils of standard size (Prismacolor, Blick etc.) easily. Some brands, eg. Derwent's Artist, Coloursoft, etc. will fit, but not the full count. This is a sturdy, well made case. Don't bother with leather unless your pencils are worth a whole heck of a lot of dough! The canvas is fine - and, if you like, you could probably decorate/label it with fabric paints.
