Hackers Help: Paint code for wood surrounding white BILLY


I was wondering if you know which paint to buy to paint wooden parts added to a white BILLY library? I would need a colour code or something similar. Here is a photo of my project.

Paint code for wood surrounding white BILLY

Hi Samy

You could take a BILLY shelf to a paint matching service and get them to mix it up for you. But do bear in mind the wood color may alter it slightly.

Centsational Girl recommends, Valspar’s ‘Dove White’.  She says the “Valspar’s ‘Cream Delight’ and ‘Ivory Dust’ are also very close matches to the IKEA white.” 

DecorChick has an IKEA white paint formula you could follow too.

Happy painting!
