Take this uber cool patchwork wood stain dresser from WestElm as inspiration for a thriftsore find update. If the wood the dresser is made of is not that stainable there are wood veneers you can buy and glue on to the dresser face!
This is like the more modern version of what I grew up seeing in Japanese kitchens: sliding door china cabinet. I like the wood, black, glass combo. Nice that it has "open" (behind glass) shelving AND drawers.
