Is anyone else feeling excited about Joanna’s new Fixer Upper Paint Colors? After making us wait for what felt like forever, Joanna FINALLY released her new Fixer Upper paint line. yaaayyy!! Joanna is selling her new paint through her shop, Magnolia Market.
I was hoping that she’s release her paint line to local shops, but so far it’s only available to purchase online. Hopefully one day soon Joanna’s new paint line will be distributed to local shops, but I’m not sure what her plans are.
Since I know you are just as anxious I am to try out Joanna’s favorite paint colors, I figured I’d do a color match for you so you can get the colors at your local store.
Did you know you can color match Fixer Upper Paints?
Actually you can color match pretty much any paint. I doubt that the local paint stores have Joanna’s new line of paint stored in their database yet though. Here’s a great way to work around that:
- Browse the images below to select your Fixer Upper Paint Color Match.
- Jot down the name of the color matched paint. Here’s the cool thing: I color matched all of the colors to a Benjamin Moore paint, but you can go to ANY paint store to get a paint that matches.
- Take the name of the paint color and the brand (in this case it’s Benjamin Moore) to the paint color and ask to have it matched to whatever brand of paint your heart desires. Every paint store has a database with brands, paint names, and their corresponding paint mix code. ***See my insider information about matching paint colors below!

**Update** A TWF reader and owner of a Benjamin Moore store emailed me and gave me some awesome insider information! Here is what she said about matching paint colors:
“Almost all stores have a data base for all other major manufacturers colors. With that being said, the computer isn’t always right, in fact, it’s often quite off. I generally think of the computer as a starting point. It gives you an idea of what to put into the color but unless you have an actual color chip of the paint you are trying to match it is diffuicult to get an exact match. I will admit, computer formulas have gotten better through the years, but I still prefer to be on the cautious side, I consider it a customer service issue if I send a customer out the door with the wrong color. Every store has its own policy of how to handle competitor matches, and even ours has changed through the years. We are happy to do a competitor match as long as the customer understands it will never be exact, and that’s the truth.”
