Take This Dresser from Fug to Fab?

Good Questions

Q: I just bought this dresser on Craigslist last night. It was $20 and a steal considering it's all wood. While I like the overall shape of the dresser, I think the finish/color is hideous. I'm asking for suggestions on what to do with it. I'm not against painting it or staining it. I'm open to either.

For some background: My bedroom is all white, with white bedding and a grey metal bed. However, I have pops of color, like a lime green poster and those little dangly lights in the picture. So I was thinking — either paint it a bright color or re-stain it?

Editor: Leave your suggestions for Cynthia in the comments — thanks!
