DIY Inspiration: Color Blocked Sideboard

We spotted this sideboard in the April 2008 issue of Wallpaper Magazine. We love the graphic color-blocking of the tonal gray values. This "Horizon" sideboard is by Pearson Lloyd for Martinez Otero from Greenwich Village at Selfridiges in England. It comes complete with a hefty £2340 (about $4671 US) pricetag. However...

... we're thinking you could easily take this as inspiration and DIY your own credenza/sideboard for a similar effect. Just paint out three blocks of gradating colors. This could also be a fun look for an office if you had three small file cabinets placed side by side in gradating colors too. Has anyone does this at home?
