IKEA White Paint Formula

We’ve accumulated a few pieces of IKEA’s furniture pieces as of late, and I needed the matching paint for it so I can do a few customizations to these pieces. A few secret projects up my sleeve. Don’t you hate that? Anyway, I decided to do the hard work for you and take a piece of the furniture into Sherwin Williams so they can color match it up and get the correct paint formula. You’re welcome.

They got a great match to the shelf I brought in.

And here is the formula so you can just show them this at Sherwin Williams and they can mix it up for you.

I just bought a quart of the Pro-Classic latex, and we determined IKEA’s furniture to have a semi-gloss sheen to it, so I got this in a semi-gloss finish. I chose latex, but you could do oil-based if you want as well.

I assume most of IKEA’s white furniture pieces are the same shade, so for reference, this was matched to a shelf from the white Billy bookcases, and it also is the same white as the Hemnes dresser. They are actually kind of creamy whites too.

This will be great for touch ups to your IKEA furniture, and if you ever want to do any of those crazy furniture hacks!

  1. Perfect timing as I am going to be painting a few pieces in my daughters room to match her Ikea pieces!!

  2. Perfect timing! I’m planning a trip to Ikea soon. I’ve got an office project up my sleeve and I know I’m going to have to do some painting of certain parts to make everything play nicely together. Thanks for doing the legwork. Definitely pinning this.

  3. Awesome to know. I think the only IKEA whites that aren’t slightly creamy are Lack, Malm and Ribba. Those seem to be bright white!

  4. I love how you always share your formulas! This one will come in handy at some point and I’m still grateful you shared the Gray you used in your daughters room that one is going in my house very soon!!

  5. Oh. holy. cow. This is beyond fantastic. We have a coffee table whose legs got waterlogged, so it’s waiting to be fixed. And this will be a life saver, because if I have to paint that whole durn thing, I might die. Not that a coffee table is hard to paint, but this one has a glass top and drawers underneath. Thanks!

  6. Awesome, I always buy the black/brown because it is easier to match. Now I can buy both!
    Thanks for sharing,

  7. Thanks for sharing, I always buy the black/brown because the whites were always to hard to match.

  8. Does this match all furniture lines? I have read that not all of the whites at IKEA are the same!

  9. I do not have any IKEA furniture but I’m wondering if this would work on some other type furniture that has an oak finish but is laminate book cases? Do you think I would need a primer first to cover the oak finish?

  10. certainly like your web site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few
    of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality nevertheless I will definitely come again again.
