The finishing touches to a home are what make a space feel lived-in, tying the home to the personality of its owner. Finishing touches don’t need to be grand decorating gestures. They can simply be smaller pieces that show off your personal taste. For the easiest and most affordable route, add those finishing touches to furniture with Furniture Stencils. You can paint and stencil areas such as dresser drawers, table tops, or even the insides of cabinets!
Our Tribal Batik Furniture Stencil can go global or glam depending on the paint color you use. Melissa Morton Ahrens used natural browns and creams to bring out a subdued tribal look. On the other hand, Phoenix Refinishings gave her cabinet a pop of bright blue paint to contrast with the pink and green.
For classic Italian design with a modern spin, Creative Finishes Studio opted for our easy-to-use Fortuny Damask Stencil to decorate the drawers of this dresser. The elegant damask pattern with a pop of crystal pulls did just the trick!
These dresser drawers get a feminine finish with the help of our Spanish Lace Scallop Furniture Stencil and Coco and French Linen Chalk Paint®. Restyled+Renewed knows this stenciled furniture piece will look so sweet in a shabby chic room or girl’s room.
Custom color love! Winsome Cottage is amazed with how well Antoinette Chalk Paint® and Amsterdam Chalk Paint® can mix to create a beautiful seafoam green color. She definitely had to use this on a piece, so she paired it with our Acanthus Damask Furniture Stencil on a distressed dresser.
A great way to decorate on a budget is with stencils. Our Aragon Damask Tile Stencil gave Lovely Nova’s cabinet an Old World look without the hefty price tag she would find in Pier 1 or World Market stores.
Our Funky Fibers Furniture Stencil gives decor a natural, woven fabric look with a soft, textural quality. Perfect for a subtle furniture finish that is super easy to decorate around! We painted this pattern in a modern boho interior, and we are in love!
Plain, clear glass gets an upgrade! Our Endless Vine Furniture Stencil is used with a reverse glass stenciling technique on the underside of a dining table designed by Heather Bruno-Sears. Stenciling glass table tops is a great way to decorate the surface with style, but also to hide any imperfections, aging, and those pesky food spills! You can keep a glass dining table top looking beautiful for longer if it is stenciled.

Michele Bouldin says, “I used the Scrollallover Furniture Stencil and Duck Egg Blue and Old White Chalk Paint® to stencil the left hand sides of the drawers. Once that side was stenciled, I cleaned the stencil and reversed it to paint the right side. This was a great project and I'm really pleased with the results. I transformed a sturdy, but tired, tall boy into a glam little piece that I stenciled myself!"
Mary Ann Hopkins says, “I wanted to create a pop on this piece. I finished the vanity in a deep black and used the Mansion Grille Trellis Furniture Stencil with white and black shading to get the 3D illusion." Phoenix Refinishing also did a similar technique with this cute nightstand!
Oak Olive Vintage gave this cabinet a modern farmhouse style makeover! To create this look, she used a delicate allover pattern, reclaimed wood, and contrasting white and navy color palette. We love the pop of Swedish Flower Field Stencil pattern that she stenciled inside the cabinet!

Page Winter Studio says, “I love updating sentimental pieces or contemporizing old furniture into something that feels more ‘me’.” She updated this furniture piece with our Otomi Folk Art Furniture Stencil in muted tones so that the pop of pattern was subdued in relation to the other pops of blue.
Kara Paslay gave her reclaimed wood table top a bohemian makeover using our Moorish de Lis Furniture Stencil. HGTV loves this stencil project and stated, “A visually interesting tabletop makes table setting easy. Coordinating items is a simple and effective way to bring harmony while looking effortless.”
My Bohemian Heart gave this dresser a pop of pattern using Wood Icing™ to emboss our Flourish Allover Stencil. She painted the entire dresser, including the stencil design, with French Linen, Paris Grey, and Old white Chalk Paint® to keep the piece subdued and shabby chic.
