Looking for information about staining my new table

Hello, everybody! I hope you are doing well. I just purchased a new dining room table/gaming table/computer desk from Ikea. I have limited space and needed a Do-It-All table! I found my answer at Ikea. The only problem is the color is a little light for my taste. I'm hoping to stain it or paint it a darker gray to match my other furniture, although I have never done anything remotely similar to this before. I'm trying to find answers on google, but it seems that there is a lot of factors that go into if it will look good (Factors I don't yet understand, such as the original color of the table and what I'm hoping to turn it into) . Here is a photo of the new table. https://imgur.com/a/j8Ck1sB and here is a photo of the color I was hoping to stain it to. https://imgur.com/a/xQqzZs7 Do you think it will work/look nice? Any advice or suggestions? Have a wonderful morning, afternoon, or evening.
