Can the IKEA Gulliver Crib be Stained?

Good Questions

Q: I am on a budget and looking for a non-toxic crib in an espresso stain. After a lot of research, I have settled on the IKEA Gulliver crib. Is there a way the crib can be refinished to a dark stain? Has anybody had any experience doing this? Also, what are some safe re-stain options? Or does anybody know of a safe, non-toxic crib in a dark stain on a budget?
