+1. Looks just as good at a fraction of the cost and hassle of having it painted. Also, reversible if needed.

If you really don't want to wrap it, buy a new piece. You don't have to worry about paint drip, the paint being even, shitty paint job, paint peeling, you can't just paint over a glossy surface the paint won't stick that well. So you'd have to sand the piece down before you even paint it. Might as well buy a new piece or wrap it.
