Inspiring Bloggers Series: Northern Nesting

Morning everyone! I am so super excited to have Martina from Northern Nesting here as part of my Inspiring Bloggers SeriesI don't even remember when I first started reading Martina's blog, but I do know that I was enamored with her painted furniture (and you know I love a good furniture makeover!) That's why I was so thrilled when she decided to feature some of her favorite pieces here today. Take a look!

Hi there Number Fifty-Three readers... I'm Martina and I blog over at Northern Nesting...my blog is all about home decor...DIY'ing... & gardening! 
~~~
I'm a long time follower of Angela's and love all her projects!!
I was so excited when she asked me to be part of her Inspiring Bloggers Series!!
~~~
I was going back and forth between doing a 
home tour post or a post about my 
furniture painting obsession...furniture painting won!
~~~
Here are some of my favorite transformations...

A chair my mom picked up for me at an estate sale...redone in MMS milk paint. I dressed it up a bit by adding the applique.

Next up my garage sale dresser...
Redone  in AS chalk paint...my favorite furniture paint!!
 My desk that I found on Craigslist...
After...
A sweet little table redone for my cousin...
 After...
 I've even been know to repaint a repaint lol!!
 These next few are recent pieces that I made over...
 Flea Market find antique chest for our master bedroom...
After...
 A demilune table that I had for years... I'm using it in my kids bathroom...
After...

 Another antique chest I found that I'm using in our master bath...
 After...
 Last but least my newest transformation...
 Giving a factory finished bench a soft...worn...white finish.
 I love how paint transforms a piece, weather it be an old piece that just needs a little TLC or making a new piece look old. 
Now pull out those paint brushes to paint and create!!

 Angela thanks so much for having me over today and featuring my blog!!
