So I know I talked about the weather in my last post but OMG you guyyyyyyyyyys. My house just about blew away yesterday. I felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. True story. We had the most insane winds allllllllll day long and it was AWFUL. Worst wind I’ve ever seen. I mean, I’m talking the kind of wind that takes down trees and power lines. It was down right dangerous and it lasted for hours and hours, which was super annoying. But thank goodness we survived and the Colorado Cyclone of 2018 is in the past. I’m extra glad we made it through because today’s post is one I’ve been looking forward to for a couple weeks now! I’m sharing a full overview of the Magnolia Home chalk-style paint colors. (Cue the jazz hands.) As you might already know, this chalk paint is now sold at Target, and it’s also available online, which is awesome because that means it’s finally easily accessible for all us DIY painting addicts. HECK YES. I absolutely love this chalk paint for lots of reasons, you can check out my full review here to see why, but I think the best part of all is that it comes in 44 beautiful colors. I thought it would be fun to share a little looksie at the five colors sold in Target stores, as well as all of the 18 shades that are available online. I even painted some super glamorous samples for you guys, so I hope this helps if you’ve been curious about the paint colors!
Magnolia Home Chalk Paint Colors
All righty, so just in case you’re new to the Magnolia Home Chalk Style Paint, let me give you a super quick overview. So chalk paint is typically used for painting furniture, but you can use it for all kinds of fun things. It’s easy to apply to a variety of surfaces, including wood, metal and even concrete. I’ve used chalk paint many times now and love how it’s not too thick and heavy (compared to the uber popular Annie Sloan chalk paint) but it’s still very pigmented, which makes for great coverage with less coats of paint. It’s basically the bomb and you can use it to transform any piece of furniture with little to no prep work. Ok, let’s take a look at the paint colors sold in Target stores!
Olive Grove: Earthy green with natural hints of hazel. I looooooooove this color!
Weekend: Denim inspired blue that is vibrant, bold and quite peppy.
Shiplap: A creamy weathered white. Perfect for all the things.
Blackboard: A rich, dark black with hints of deep blue.
Garden Trowel: Earth toned gray accented with olive green and cocoa. GORGEOUS.
Now here’s a look at all 18 colors available online in the Magnolia Home Chalk Paint:
I was surprised to see the finishing wax is also carried by Target. They have both the clear and the dark wax, which I shared all about in this post. This stuff is really great and it is the perfect way to seal any piece of furniture that is done with chalk paint. It’s super easy to work with too. The clear wax is awesome if you want to keep the paint color as is, but the dark wax is used to give more of a vintage, aged look.
Well I hope this look at the Magnolia Home Chalk-style paint colors was helpful for you guys and maybe inspires you to take on a new DIY project. And I’d love to hear what you think of this paint if you’ve tried it out! I’m actually working on a little furniture project right now with the color Olive Grove and I can’t wait to share it. And let me tell you, my husband is thrilled to see that I’m using a color other than white!
