    trying painting white over it ... or a watered down white ... to soften the color.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I think the color changes from when we get it at the store and when we put it on the walls. I was over tired and needed to get paint for my bathroom, I know I like bright colors and always tone down my choices when it comes to the walls. However, a very bright BUTTER YELLOW is way to bright for a bathroom. Had to redo it with a softer color sigh

    Maybe they meant it was light blue compared to a dark blue. It would not be a good choice for me. I use off white for all my walls, makes the house look bigger and doesn't clash with the other colors in the room. Just me.

    I like it myself. When my kids were small we painted all their rooms and the bathrooms a bright color because it was supposed to make them happier.

    You could tone it down by sponge painting over it in white or a lighter blue.
