Both will likely stay in our bedroom so the finish needs to look work well against dark brownish gray walls.
Don't worry...the TV will not permanently reside on the dresser! The goal is the get it mounted on the wall. We'll put it between the bathroom door and where the kidney desk is...you can't see the area unless you're in the bed (as mentioned before, I detest visible electronics).
Anyhow, here are some inspiration pics:

Poppy...love this against the dark wall!
