The perfect dresser for a star wars room

My son has a star wars room that he has wanted for a long time.  I was trying to figure out what to do with his dresser when I came across this one at a garage  sale for just $3!
It was solid wood with dove tail drawers and in great working condition.  The problem with it was the veneer was peeling off the top of the dresser.  No problem, I can deal with that!
So I scraped it all off and sanded really well.  Next I primed the whole dresser with kilz.  I wasn't sure whether to do black or grey or what for this star wars room.
I settled on a little bit of both.
The drawer pulls had to be switched as some of the original pulls were missing.  I painted them black.
He loves his dresser, and I like it too.  It is one that will be great for his room for a long wars or not.
