Bought these shelves at Target about a month ago. They are made out of sturdy particle board, the finish is matte black, and has a smooth feel. very aesthetically pleasing. Make sure you check these out in store first though, the packaging consists of a cardboard wrap, and some of the shelves had damage to the corners and sides.
I love these shelves and they are a cute addition to my daughter's room. However, the included hardware is terrible! I not a DIY newbie and I know how to use wall anchors. The included anchors are TERRIBLE and push right through the dry wall. If you choose to get this product, use your own, smaller, dry wall anchors.
