I don’t think you will happy with the results if you use stain but guess what? If you or your wife (main decision maker) don’t like the stain you can always paint over the stain. Just be sure to put a good sealer/primer over the stain before you apply the paint. Also be careful with the stain if you don’t want the inside of the drawers stained or painted. You can use masking tape or pre-finish the insides of the drawers with a clear varathane to protect them. I prefer water base varathane and sand lightly (320 sand paper) between two or three coats for a smooth finish.
