Display tip: Stay away from black shelving, especially when glossy. Even if it fits the room’s palette, black is quick to show dirt and dust, plus even slight surface wear will be impossible to miss. This is my boxed portable collection and for as well as this shelf holds what I need it to, it is persistently dirty. Shelves show scrapes, and owning pets makes it no easier to maintain. Stick with faux wood grains, custom build where possible with light stains, or paint with bright colors.
