I don't know why but this jumped out at me...its an unusual finish. My concern is not being able to find matching pieces.

I think it looks really nice! Could you google the style and see if there were any other pieces that could go with it???

It's beautiful, but you're right about the finish. I have
spent a lot of time shopping for a dresser, and don't think I've seen that finish or anything similar in a furniture store. Of course, it's not what I'm looking for either - just really doesn't look familiar. Does the manufacturer sell a matching dresser?

One of the reviews said that the crib matches Ikea's Leksvik line in the antique stain. I looked at those, and it does look similar. So maybe you could get the dresser or wardrobe to match from Ikea.

That is a really cute crib! and that's awesome if you can find something from Ikea to match. They have pretty good prices.

Does it have any furniture that matches it available? I think it's really unique

I think it's beautiful! I don't know what kind of bedding you are leaning towards, but I think you could do black pieces of furniture with it and it would look really cool....JMO

Very cute Kate! Don't worry too much about matching furniture, ours doesn't match exactly either but it looks SO cute together. I think it would look just too cute in a little boy's nursery!!! *hint*

Oh, and DH says hello! LOL

I agree it definitely looks like it would match Ikea's Leksvik. We have a bunch of those pieces in our living room and as soon as I saw it that is what I throught of. If you can't match exactly then I would get black or white and design the room with the crib as a focal point (since it will be anyway ).

eh, I think we're gonna keep looking...B found another one he really liked yesterday...dang picking furniture is hard!!

And FYI, we're going with chocolate brown, sage green and then either pink or navy depending on the gender. That's my plan for now anyway... Now have I found bedding yet?? no..so we'll see

I was going to suggest IKEA as well as an option for stain. They have some great furniture options and a stain that should match.

It's really beautiful! What about checking Graco's website to see if they have matching pieces?

I was going to say the finish looked kind of rustic. I agree with the IKEA idea, I can't belive that Graco didn't have more furniture than that, Graco is such a common baby company. I will tell you that if you decide on Graco carseat or stroller or the pack and play, they have more color options online than in the stores.
