Cute finds @ Forever21 on 6.20.12

Being almost 33 weeks pregnant, I forget what it's like to wear those cute shorts and perfect fitting jeans.  It seems like Forever21 has the cutest everything out this season.
Here are just a few of my favorite, my feet started to hurt so I had to leave.

We snagged this adorable vintage rocking chair from the same antique store in El Segundo for $24.00.  Cleaned it up, sanded it and re-stained it.
We made a new seat out of wood and foam, bought some chevron fabric from and a few upholstery nails and we had ourselves one cute little rocking chair!  I just love how it turned out!!

I fell in love with these Industrial Baskets with a liner reading "TOYS" from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child but I didn't fall in love with the price.  At $299 each, it was out of my price range so I knew a project was in the works.
We went to an amazing antique store in El Segundo and picked up this cute galvanized tub, the owner was beyond sweet and ended up gifting it to us as baby's first antique gift.  I got black acrylic paint and a sponge brush from Michael's Arts and Crafts for $2.48 and some 5 inch stencils from Hobby Lobby in the font I wanted for $8.00.  I think it turned out perfect, it is exactly what I envisioned and for only $10.48 you can't beat it.

My inspiration $299:

My finished project $10.48:
