My Masterpiece and My New Project

As you can see I finished the $22 dresser, and it looks great, but in true LG fashion, I forgot one of the handles. UGGGG so its almost finished... just need to make another trip to get that missing piece of hardware. It fits the wall space perfectly in the sports room and is Ralphie & Flossie's new dresser. They love it (in case you were wondering)
And then yesterday I spotted this beauty on the side of the road. One of my fav. things about East nash is all the people selling their wares up and down the main drag. It might be fake stuff, new stuff, used stuff, stolen stuff.. one will never know! But this was neat and made very well and authentic 60's retro. The man wanted $40 for it because it was an "antique" and had some kind of special hardware on it. When i started driving away he came down to my $20 offer and loaded right up.
Now I bought this for the sports room as a night stand, which we need desperately in there, but that room is using black furniture... so... should I paint of stain this? Change the hardware? I kind of love it the way it is. I just dont know! Comment with suggestions and vote in the poll on the right!
I learned on another blog, that dovetailing and real wood = quality furniture. This one passes the test!
