Dresser to match Graco Lauren Espresso Crib

If you are getting this crib...  What dresser are you getting to match up with it?

I am considering the Ikea HERMNES or Baby Cache Essential collection in Espresso (there is a $300 off coupon at BRU right now)

Re: Dresser to match Graco Lauren Espresso Crib

  • I was also thinking about IKEA dressers to go with this crib!  I am worried the Espressos won't match, but not sure they will be that off that you could tell.  I am waiting for the crib to get here and taking it to IKEA.

     How are you using a $300 off coupon from BRU for and IKEA dresser?  Or are you using it for the crib?  If so, the crib is like $159 on WalMart.com and they were offering a free matress!

  • We just put together the same exact crib last weekend! (same color too). I was going to take MH to IKEA to take a look at what they have. We don't want to pay an arm and a leg right now for a dresser, so IKEA sounded perfect!

    Let us know which one you go with Smile

    Amazon has free shipping (with Amazon Mom) and it was $150 for us I think? I did reviews on the matress and it wasn't good, so we're opting to get another matress :) FWIW, we ordered a Storkcraft glider in espresso, and the Graco lauren crib and they are a bit different in color Sad But not horribly different

    ETA- Totally didn't mean for any of this to come off snotty :( If it did I apologize!

  • We got the one that they sell at BRU as a set with the Lauren.  We got the crib and changing table set at Walmart and then ordered the dresser at BRU when they had the 20% off sale.  I think this is the right dresser (sorry, don't know how to make it clicky!)

  • We have the Graco Lauren Espresso, and we bought a dresser from Wal-Mart.com It was only about $200. We have it put together and it's very sturdy and matches the crib really well in my opinion. Here's the link:

    Click on the Espresso color, not the oak. :)

    We plan on putting this on the wall above it:

    and then obviously having a changing pad on the dresser.

    Not snotty at all!  I will look at Amazon.  DH hasn't decided that he loves the espresso color yet, so I am still waiting but if we can get it cheaper, that is always good. I didn't even look at the matress b/c we already got one from a friend who had an extra. how long was it for your shipping from Amazon?

    This is what I got from IKEA and it matches great! Granted, I don't have them side by side but they match.

    Most of it is free 2-day shipping, though the crib I think took 4 days?

    We got exactly the same thing (IKEA Hemnes 3 drawer in expresso). They look great together.

    I at first wanted to buy this crib because my name is Lauren Embarrassed At Christmastime last year Target had the crib and changing table for $149.99 and I tried to talk MH into buying it but it was a no go lol. I looked at Ikea for dressers for the crib we did get but my mom ended up buying us something. I prefer Ikea because it's so easy to match their other pieces to each other if you want to buy more than just a dresser, and even the "cheap" stuff we have bought from them has been really good quality. They also sell the piece to add onto the dresser to make it a changing table.

     

    I can't complain but sometimes I still do
    Life's been good to me so far

    We haven't bought our crib yet, but this is one that is on the top of our list.  We still haven't decided if we are going to go with espresso or white.  Thanks for all the ideas of matching dresser for the espresso.

  • We were at BRU this past weekend and they had a Carter's dresser on sale for $99, regularly $349.  It was being discintinued.  It matched the color very well http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3538753 here's the link, not sure if it will work but it's called Carter's Sleep Haven Dresser.
