Let your furniture do the talking with the help of a romantic, French accent. The way you decorate your home says a lot about you — but if you decorate with words, it can say even more. Rather than pay ridiculous prices at antique stores, you can make your own oh la la vintage-inspired décor with the help of our French Love Letters Furniture Stencil pattern. The French love quotes add an extra touch of amour on painted furniture such as dressers, doors, table tops, or even on the sides of drawers. The cursive French love expressions translate in English to:
Let’s check out some our favorite stencils French lettering furniture below – we think you’ll like what they have to say!
Do you ever come across a plain piece of furniture that is, well, nothing to write home about? We have the answer to your "how to paint it" problem... Letter Stencils! What do you think of this phenomenal stenciled table from Annie’s Attic? This French letter stencil complements the regal carving and detailing of the piece.
We are head over heels in love with Confessions of a Serial DIYer’s romantic jewelry box! She says, “This French Love Letter Stencil is perfect for adding a romantic feel to this makeover.” To continue with the romantic look, she painted the box with French Linen Chalk Paint® and distressed the edges.
We are finding so many ways to use it! My Patch of Blue Sky used this pattern on a bombe chest and she loves how easy and fast this project took her. She says, “The best part is that these projects will not take much time at all. I think I spent more time gathering the materials than I did working on them!” Read the helpful tutorial at A Perfectly Coordinated Stencil Project: Accent Wall & Bombe Chest.
Cynthia Neff added instant French flair without spending a lot at an antique store! She created the weathered look of shabby chic furniture with white and gray paint. She topped off this romantic look with French love quotes from our French Love Letters Furniture Stencil and French-inspired décor.
Why does everything seem better with a French accent?! Such as… this tres jolie painted piece done by Art and Soul. We love the old parchment look she created using our lettering stencil and Annie Sloan Dark Wax. So shabby chic!
Some would dismiss curbside furniture as trash, but Prodigal Pieces sees potential beauty – they just need a little paint and creativity. As a prime example, she upcycled this curbside vanity with our French Love Letters Furniture Stencil so that it would have the French flair and shabby chic look that she loves. Not bad for a piece of trash, eh?
Prodigal Pieces does it again with a resurrected crate. Who knew that a simple stencil project could transform this has-been to a must-have-it? It’s so cute for showing off plants or storing magazines!
Harmony Girl Charm gave this dresser a much-needed upcycle with the help of our lettering stencil and Versilles Green Chalk Paint®. This paint color is inspired by French furniture and gilded décor, making it a perfect foundation for the French quote.
Everything old can be new again with the help of stencils. Phoenix Refinishing saved this $3 wood crate by adding some rustic charm with our French Love Letters Furniture Stencil. Now it is a beautiful piece that can be the focal point on a coffee table or patio table!
Vintage charm is all about the details and Reconditionally Yours’ stenciled bench is no exception! The porcelain figurine perched on top of the decorative books and stenciled bench makes the perfect French vintage seating for a foyer or garden.
Reconditionally Yours updated this 5 drawer dresser with a muted gold top and painted the French Love Lettering Stencil pattern on the fronts of the drawers using Old White Chalk Paint®. She also distressed and waxed the entire piece to show off the longevity of classic pieces such as this dresser from the 1940s. Furniture Stencils give these older pieces a pep in their step and more to their drawer ;)
When in doubt, stencil it out! Restor’d Worthy Goods gave this bleu beauty a makeover using Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® and our French lettering furniture stencil. Though this cobalt blue and French stencil can create a neoclassical look, it can also create a contemporary look. It all depends on the décor surrounding it!
Saw Nail and Paint learned that the Lane cedar chest that she bought to upcycle was originally marketing during the World War II era to the sweethearts the soldiers painstakingly left behind. Given the history, she knew the French Love Letters Furniture Stencil would be perfect for this piece.
