Jenn and I assembled some furniture for our daughter and we wanted to match the raw wood to the stain of her crib. We took a piece of the crib to a paint store NOT a big box store and worked with the folks there and they spent a good hour with us trying different stains and combinations of finishes until we had a perfect match…they did not charge us for the time or myriad cans of finish they opened but they sure got a confirmed customer. So I would suggest find a Paint store in your area and foster a good working relationship with them. Take your inspirational photo and the vision you have for your room and let them help.
