Ok, since none other seems to comment, I'll step in in order to not make
it stalled ;-) Now that I look at it, the dark looks better than the
light version (the bright blue, or even almost white clashes a lot with
the mid-bright grey). I was thinking you could perhaps try to improve
the contrast (in smaller sizes) by making the body brighter instead of
the drawers (probably not as bright as in user-desktop though). Plus the
shadows in 256x256 under handles need improvement. I'd use trapezium
(lol, I had to find out this word in dictionary...) instead of ellipse.

I'll try to take a look at it :)

Other than that, I'm pretty much satisfied with the result (as we
discussed on IRC already), even though it's not wooden ;-)

MMh... Plastic and Metal :D
