As you all probably know by now, mint is my favorite color… hands down. So you can imagine my delight when Bridgett, from Osie Moats sent in her incredible before & after buffet transformation. Bridgett took an outdated thrift shop find and revived it by finishing it in a minty gray/blue…ahh, a girl after my own heart!
Here’s what Bridgett’s buffet looked like when she picked it up:
Bridgett chose this buffet to transform because the quality was great. Although it had laminate material on the cabinet fronts, all of the drawers had beautiful dove tail joints…a key factor when selecting a good piece of furniture to flip! She chose to paint the buffet in Frozen Pond by Behr, but before she did so, she primed the entire piece to be sure the paint adhered to the laminate material. Here’s how the buffet turned out!
What an incredible transformation! Look at the beautiful mirror and striped accent wall too! Well done, Bridgett!
Here’s a close up of the hardware. Bridgett made a great choice in keeping the original hardware, which has a great aged brass patina…
Cheers to another successful transformation! Share your thoughts and rate Bridgett’s transformation below!

I love this transformation and mint is a pretty awesome color!
Wow, next time I see a piece of laminate furniture I might just have to get it! It looks amazing. Love the color and the stripes on the wall.

This is so gorgeous! How could I convince my parents to paint my furniture this beautiful color? I have an old rusty brown in my beachy room… it does NOT look very good. Although, this white would look great!!! I have extra chalk paint. Would that work?
Convince them to let you do it 😉 Use CeCe Caldwell Chalk + Clay paint which is all natural, and it’s made for furniture. You can paint on any surface without sanding or priming (in most cases).
You can buy the paint here:
Was a roller, paint brush or sprayer used?
I saw your buffet on Pinterest and I fell in love! great color choice:)
