Please help me understand what is wrong with this photo

I realize that this photo is really bad but I have no idea what is wrong with it. I used a relatively good Nikon digital camera DSLR on automatic. I used the built-in flash. If I need to buy a flash then please let me know which one will be good for photography like this. I had a lot of light in the room but the photo looks dark and dreary.

I tried to focus before I shot but it doesn't look right.

Another question, I often see my own shadow on the objects that I am trying to shoot. How do I prevent this?

Please let me know what I can do to improve my photography...

Thanks in advance!
