Well rather than get a random side, you could just double the number of
pieces in the deck.

What you would do is to have your pieces with
  Piece 1: Side A / Side B
  Piece 2: Side A / Side B
  Piece 3: Side A / Side B
and then just add
  Piece 1a: Side B / Side A
  Piece 2a: Side B / Side A
  Piece 3a: Side B / Side A

then what you draw is already what you want.
(I assume you will still want to be able to flip the drawn pieces between
side A and B.  If you don't need that, it becomes even easier.)
