The lighting in the room is dim, and our camera isn't very good so the color is actually quite a bit different than it appears in the photos. The second photo is closer to the actual color.
A couple weeks ago I managed to finish painting our room, thanks to G's parents watching the boys one day when they were here visiting -- and some late nights after they left. It turned out excellent! It took me months to commit to the color, but G and several trusted friends all gave me some encouragement and I'm really happy with the results. I was really worried the color would be too "baby boy," but quite the contrary (although it does sort of look like a baby's nursery in the photos!)
