A Dresser to Go With the Stokke Sleepi Crib

A Dresser to Go With the Stokke Sleepi Crib

Q: I am working on designing a nursery for my second child. The baby's crib will be a Stokke Sleepi in the natural finish. I'm wondering whether any of your readers have found dressers that closely match it in color? I haven't had great luck with any of the usual suspects: Land of Nod, Pottery Barn Kids, Restoration Hardware, etc... I search Craigslist every day for something that might work, to no avail (so far). I have heard that Oeuf has a closely matching dresser, but their pieces cost more than I'm looking to spend. In case it helps, I'm planning on putting a white Expedit in the room, so a dresser that has some white would work well.

Editor: I have this crib myself so I know exactly the color wood it has - just a touch more honey than a birch. I think you could look for something unfinished and experiment with a few stains to closely match the color. Or go all white. Readers - what do you think? Do you have this crib in a natural finish - if so, what dresser do you have?
