Have I mentioned that I know quite a few ladies that are expecting in the next 5-ish months? Well, I do.
My friend Chelsea is one of those lovely ladies. I went to high school with Chelsea’s older sister, Ashley, and became friends with Chels through her. Then Chelsea started working at the vet clinic our family uses so we got to know her even better.
Chelsea is awesome. She reminds me of my own sister… maybe that’s why I like her so much.
Chelsea is expecting a baby boy that they will call “Riot” at the end of November. They have decided to go with a vintage robot theme for his room… so I decided to whip up something more personal than just what was on their registry. Because I can’t help myself.
I picked up a canvas from Joann Fabrics for a few dollars plus a bunch of acrylic paint (on sale!) after asking Chels what colors they were using in addition to the robot theme.
Then I went to town. I sketched out a general idea on a scrap piece of paper first, but the actual design was completely free-handed onto the canvas.
Once I was satisfied with the painting I sealed it and then added some fun glitter glue to the details… the “lights” and the little electric bolts.
I think he turned out pretty cute! Almost makes me want to re-do my own room with some robots…
