Q: Help! I'm using a Crate & Barrel Shift shelf (larger photo below) as a sideboard in our dining room. It fits the room perfectly, but I have no idea what to put on the shelves? Serving pieces? Knick-knacks? Picture frames?

My boyfriend is opposed to books because he feels they'll be forgotten about and don't really fit in the dining room. I'm lost and need your readers help to fill these shelves. (Please excuse the crooked wall photos, it's a work in progress.)
