How To Revamp Old, Broken Built-Ins?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into a new apartment in a single family home and I am really loving it except for one thing.. this disaster of built in shelving in the dining room. At this point I'm lost! Do I paint in? Add doors? Add more shelves AND doors? Blow it up?! I'm also not one for displaying fancy dishes for entertaining - my style is very casual and somewhat funky.
