Furniture stencils are a great idea for adding pattern to a room without engulfing the entire space in a certain style. This way of decorating is the perfect way to introduce bold exotic patterns from Morocco into your home if you’re not so sure about stenciling an entire wall… just yet. Give your décor an exotic look minus the souk haggling, using these shortcuts to Moroccan furniture stencil style…

Happy customer Kim Haley says, "This was IKEA furniture that I "hacked" to make it a little more interesting. I just loved the Bronze Age Royal Stencil Creme because it takes on a different color every time a different light hits. I ended up doing 3 pieces to make a complete furniture set I loved it so much!" The metallic bronze paint and Casbah Trellis Furniture Stencil mimic the look of intricate Moroccan wrought iron gates – how DIVINE!
Here’s another take on a Moroccan stenciled furniture project. Urban Cottage used our Moroccan Arches Furniture Stencil but turned the pattern sideways and used Old White Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and left some of the wood unpainted. Isn’t that cool? Stencils are so versatile that you can switch it up (and switch it around) for your own custom look!
There is no denying our Mughal Trellis Stencil adds an exotic look to furniture. Even with its Moroccan influence and ornate pattern, this trellis stencil easily adapts to all decorating tastes. House of Rumours achieved a contemporary look by stenciling with muted greens and creams and placed the piece under her modern wall art.
Gaysha made a statement with this furniture piece finished in Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and antiqued with Dark Wax. Our Moroccan Arches Furniture Stencil gives the cabinet doors an exotic pattern that is seen everywhere in Morocco.
To capture the true essence of Morocco, Nomadic Decorator opted for our Starry Moroccan Night Stencil to create the bold geometric lines on this “mother-of-pearl” inlaid table. Check out the full tutorial here: DIY Stenciled Moroccan Inlaid Table.
This geometric furniture stencil combines both chevron and Ikat pattern trends in one beautiful design! Use our Ikat Zig Zag Moroccan Furniture Stencil on table tops like we did here and style the space with Moroccan tea pots that you can get from World Market.
The Moorish Fleur de Lis Stencil is a Moroccan take on the classic European fleur de lis. This classic pattern with an exotic edge was used to decorate My Patch of Blue Sky’s dresser. She used Old White Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and Soft Wax to give this piece a face lift with a distressed look. With the top left unpainted, the stencil pattern on the front really stands out beautifully. Check out the full tutorial here: How to Paint Pattern on Wood Dresser.
Paint in Thyme stenciled her RV cabients with our Arabesque Moroccan Stencil and used Modern Masters patina products to create the beautiful rust finish. She says, “We now have the best dressed RV is America!”
Petticoat Junktion’s thrift store table was in pretty bad shape when she found it with missing veneer and damages to the finish. She instantly knew furniture stencils would be her upcycle savior, and opted for the gorgeous bold pattern of our Star Diamonds Moroccan Furniture Stencil. Look – she even painted individual stars from the stencil onto the bottom shelving! Too cute!
Bland white cabinets are a thing of the past. Patterns, especially exotic designs that invoke wanderlust, are seen in the trendiest interiors including cabinet doors! You can easily mimic the look of Moroccan doors like Nomadic Decorator did by using Wood Icing to raise the pattern of our Star Diamonds Moroccan Stencil. These gorgeous cabinet doors are begging to be thrown open to see what’s inside! For the full tutorial, check out: Armoire Makeover: From Modern to Antique with Stencil Embossing.
Moroccan style has been hot, hot, hot in home decor for some time now, and Moroccan poufs are especially trendy. They fit the “bohemian chic” style that’s popular right now, and they are SO versatile. Deb of Nomadic Decorator chose a vinyl fabric to use Flat Black Royal Stencil Crème and our Fez Blanket Stencils on. Now she’s ready to sit back and kick up her feet on this trendy stenciled upholstery! Check out DIY Moroccan Décor: Stenciled Moroccan Pouf for the full tutorial.
If you have more of a contemporary look in mind for your furniture upcycle, you can still use Moroccan Stencils, but in a more untraditional way. Wood Creatives Furniture used a light coat of Pure White Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan to highlight our Casbah Moroccan Furniture Stencil in a very subtle and gorgeous way. The piece would not overshadow other décor and would certainly be a great introduction to Moroccan decorating.
