French Vintage Furniture Stencils

6 ideas on using French designs and Chalk Paint for vintage furniture stencils - Royal Design Studio

Vicki Shoemaker of 3 Oaks Studio and Tami Fandrei of Patina Home and Garden both used our Paris Postage Stamp stencil combined with the Paris Postmark stencil to give a unique vintage look to their furniture/accent pieces. The Scrollallover stencil tops the table on the left. Its gracefully curving, asymmetrical design is as perfect for stenciling tabletops as it is for walls.


If you’re searching for a paint that gives you the look of hand painted antique furniture with a velvety, matte finish, then Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is the product for you! And to top off the vintage vibe that you are drooling over, make sure to add soft, romantic stenciled details using our Vintage Furniture Stencils. Craving more inspiration?
