gray stained furniture?

I've decided to start with decorating our bedroom! I think it's an important space that goes neglected too long. Right now, our bedroom feels very big and white, so much that I can't really sleep. I might be like my little neice, Sage, who needs to be swaddled in order to sleep. So, I will swaddle myself in colour and decor. We've decided to go with gray walls, a bit darker than normal, to make the room feel a bit smaller. And maybe refinish our furniture in lighter or darker shades of gray for a monochromatic feeling. I've been wondering about staining my bedside tables gray, but there's not much out there on the net that shows me whether this will look good or not. Guess I'll just have to pioneer it and try it out! Here's some inspiration I did find though for gray furniture...

i love the look these wicker chairs from Crate and Barrel. That's the colour I was thinking of for our bedside tables.

a gray bedside table from cb2...a bit more metallic than I had in mind but we get the idea.

staining our chest of drawers gray might look like this {pic from kioskdesign}...
