The black is not black but rather a attempt at creating a "distressed" look by painting black streaks over a flat silver finish. The look was a miss (or a mess even), but I liked the simplicity of the design, so I decided to buy black spray paint to make the piece work for me. The only distress was mine when I opened the box and found one of the glass shelves broken in a million pieces. Thankfully, a call for a replacement glass hassle-free.
