Maybe you could focus on colors rather than objects, if that makes sense? I like the idea of reds, and other bright colors, but maybe wait on the sports theme til he's a little older (assuming he...

I live in Denver and it's really really dry here, so mold isn't often a problem. Although this year we've gotten a lot of rain, so maybe it would be different. I guess I was more curious if it could...

You can mix some gray or other dark color paint with either paint thinner or water and "rag it on." Just use a rag to wipe it on the frame, then wipe off excess.

I assume it's already dried? Otherwise it shouldn't be too hard to wipe it off.
