(It actually doesn't look terrible in the photos, but it does in person).
I bought some paint at Home Depot in a light grayish-blue color and I think I'm going to attempt to go for vertical stripes above the white panel...something like this, but not yellow.
(Found on Pinterest...but no link)
I might forgo the stripes depending on how lazy I feel...but I'm praying the new color is actually more "zen." What did you update for the arrival of your kiddos?
