Magnolia Home Paint Colors – Perfect Shiplap & Fixer Upper Paint Colors

paint colors matched

When I started my home renovation I, of course, went to the experts on “rustic farmhouse” renovations Chip and Joanna Gaines for all things home renovation including Magnolia Home paint colors the perfect fixer-upper couple .

This was one of my favorite things to pick out so I thought I would share with you some ideas and inspiration to help you decide on paint colors.

What Magnolia Home paint shiplap color do I use? Joanna Gaines has recommended True White before and it’s matched to Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace.

Should I use a matte or semi-gloss on shiplap? The preference is yours it doesn’t really matter but I would recommend matte. A semi-gloss would be easier to wipe off though.

When we first looked at our new home before we bought it I told my husband if we bought it it would need a lot of work. We knew that going into it but it was in our budget. We didn’t want to have a really high mortgage we would rather buy something at a lower price and fix it up. My husband is very handy and luckily did most of the remodeling himself.

Are you ready for a before and after picture that will blow your mind?!

Doesn’t the white on the walls make it look so much bigger and brighter/cleaner? We obviously changed the cabinets and stuff too but before the walls were a creamy tan color and there was floral wallpaper. What a huge difference paint makes.

My husband thought I was crazy for picking the True White (shown below) but our house was really dark and dreary before so I wanted it to be bright and clean. My husband had never used Magnolia Home products and it was only available online at the time. So after doing some research, I ended up color matching their colors to Benjamin Moore colors.

True white (Magnolia Home) is the same color as Chantilly Lace (Benjamin Moore) which is what we ended up using.

“Because paint is the easiest and most dramatic way to transform a space,” said Joanna in a press release. “I’m often asked for advice on selecting paint colors and I want to make that process simpler. I hope these colors come to mean as much to others in their own homes as they do to me.” quoted from interview with Country Living.

I am not sure when her new line will be available at major retailers, for now, Magnolia Home paint colors are only available in certain places. See the place by clicking above.

As for buying Benjamin Moore colors you can go to any paint store and take the Benjamin Moore color card and have them make it for you. 

Some people get really nervous about choosing because they feel like it is so permanent. But remember it is not and you can repaint if needed.

Always use samples and do a large spot in the room to see how it looks. Lighting is always different in every room depending on how many windows and natural light is let in.

We used a sprayer to paint and it made the job so much easier. I highly recommend using one it cuts the painting time in half.

Here is the one we used from Amazon. I didn’t actually use it myself but I am sure anyone can use it. I prepared the room and he did the actual spraying.

  1. I love these colors! I try to encourage people to go as bold as they dream of for paint color, because like you said, it’s not as permanent as people feel like it is! I grew up with parents who worked (and still work) for a big paint company so maybe I am a little biased! lol
