"3 Easy Steps Turn A Boring Bookcase Into A Beautiful Statement Piece"

This is unintentionally humorous. For example:

 

"Bookshelves are not just for books," Berkus says. On his shelves, Berkus has framed family photos, a piece of coral bought at a flea market, a small figurine brought back from vacation, and some hidden treasures picked up a garage sale.

 

In my reality, this would only work if I piled even more of my books in my closet than are already there. My bookshelves are as full as I can make them. There is literally no room to artfully display a figurine or a picture frame. What's the point of my bookcases if they're not storing as much of my ridiculously large library as possible?
