xp- frustrated with furniture PIP

Anyone else having problems deciding on furniture for the nursery?  At first I loved dark wood (matches the rest of house).  Then DH got the idea of white furniture stuck in my head and I forgot all about the dark wood.  Then today I got a really great deal on a Best rocker.  It's oak with a light brown suede pad.  I figured it would stand out a little from a white crib and dresser, but it's no biggie.  But when we put it in the room, it matches the pine dresser perfectly.  We had planned on painting the dresser white to match whatever crib we bought, but now I'm reconsidering buying a honey oak crib to match the dresser and glider. I'm not a huuuuge fan of oak, but everything will match and look coordinated.

So what do you think?  Would this crib look ok?

  • It would be different, but not necessarily bad. I would go with a black or white crib if you can't find one closer to the colors of the dresser/chair, but its really not a big deal. The crib is going to be the focal point of the room. I like it though!
  • Personally I like the crib and think that it would go well with the glider and the dresser. But, if you want a white crib and also paint the dresser white, then the glider would look fine with that too.

  • I would go with a white crib and paint the dresser either all white or partially white.
