Swag out your shelves.

Price range: $0

Decorating doesn't always mean being flashy, and it certainly doesn't have to result in something tacky. All it takes is a bit of creative planning to make a boring bookshelf look dope. Show off your shelving game by introducing some variety into the way you arrange your books—stack some, lean some, maybe add a picture frame or the mid-century modern vase your girlfriend bought you last Christmas. If you've got left-over paint, consider painting just the interior or trim of your bookshelf.
