Should I Stain or Should I Go Now?

Good Questions

Q: I have some furniture I purchased in 2005 that I now abhor! I am trying to decide whether to DIY-it and stain it to look like what I want or if I should just sell it. Not sure if it's able to even look like what I want (dark wood w/ silver handles). Does anyone have experience staining furniture like mine to look like what I'd like?

Editor - What do you think Apartment Therapy community, should SG go the DIY route or just sell/donate their furniture and purchase what they'd really like?
