I may have gone a bit too bright, any tips?!

Or just paint over it, if it's really bright then go over with cheap white paint first so that you don't end up having to do too many coats of your chosen paint smile. Go to sleep child!!!

Ooh that sound nice. Suspect given how bright the room is plus the amount of crap stuff in there already, it may possibly look abut too much IYSWIM?
Hope little one sleeps soon. DD is fast on and I have insomnia- nice!

Whilst i sit here waiting for my 2year old to fall asleep, thought i'd reply! If you don't fancy repainting, you can get big samples of wallpaper from shops like laura ashley that are less bright and staple them to a wooden frame, helps break it up and you can get creative with string to make them useful too. Just an idea whilst i sit on my landing!

Painted DD bedroom sick of waiting for DP to do it but ended up with quite a luminous bright pink. Looks ok but would like to tone it down. Could I just paint a pale pink over the top? Or do I have to prime it all?
