Furniture Updo- Bookshelf

My mom gave me a bookshelf (which we needed really bad!).  It was a light oak color which just did not match my house colors whatsoever.  I have cherry wood and black for everything.  I wanted to be able to use this right away and did not have a lot of time to spend on it so I decided to spray paint it.  I am very happy with how it turned out!  It works great in my daughters bedroom for all of those Scholastic book orders- I am completely addicted lol  I have a table I want to stain using "ebony" and I will decide which look I like better but for now this really dressed the bookshelf up.  Sorry I didn't take before pictures.  My  camera charger went missing for awhile.

Do you prefer to stain or spray paint furniture??  I would love links to anything you have redone!!  I am just getting started and welcome all tips. Thanks for stopping by :o)
