DIY French Script Stenciled Wall

Oui, oui, the writing is on the wall, y’all…and if these walls could talk, they would whisper in a French accent. DIY French Script Stenciled Wall shares the how-to and photos of a timeless stenciled accent wall in a guest bedroom. I’m also sharing an update on my personal life at the end.

The French script is nearly illegible so the artfulness is about character and dramatic scale. Admire the look of old French letters and documents? Try this inexpensive and easy DIY with grey chalk paint you can make yourself!

How to Create a Chic French Script Stenciled Accent Wall!

If you have stenciled before, then you know. It’s easy peasy, madame. However, the beauty of this stencil project is how I customized the look to appear hand-lettered.

I’m sharing the secrets!

Is stenciling a wall sooooo 5 minutes ago? Someone impolitely dissed my French script wall on FB, informing me French Script is totally passé. To that, I say KISS MY LE GRITS. It’s timeless, and I’m unconcerned with trends.

Supplies include: 21″ x 10.75″ stencil, pouncer style natural bristle paintbrush, blue painter’s tape, and grey chalk paint.

I started the project with Annie Sloan Paris Grey but underestimated the amount of paint required! Since I didn’t want to stop stenciling, I successfully mixed my own. It matched beautifully! (I have made chalk paint many times, so if you have ever wanted to learn how to make chalk paint, read on!)

Supplies: French Script Stenciled Wall

French Script Stencil

The stencil’s description from Stencil Stash notes: “Taken from an old letter between friends, the text is only partially legible to add an evocative feel to your projects. Perfect for furniture, fabric, crafts and home decor.”

Repeating the stencil on a large expanse meant reusing the stencil many times and paint build up on the stencil. While this mylar stencil cleans up easily with soap and water, it’s helpful to buy multiples of the stencil to minimize the labor and pauses to clean the stencil.

The size of the XL size stencil I used is 21″ by 10.75″.

Stencil Brush

I used a pouncer paintbrush like this one for the project, and I liked being able to vary the pressure as I pounced. This helped me achieve a script look: faded in some areas, darker in others. This look also allowed me to stencil imperfectly since I was going for authentic, aged, hand lettering.

I have used stencil brushes like the ones below as well, and they work well. However, for a project like my wall which took many hours, a more ergonomic paintbrush with good hand-feel came in handy.

This is the tape used to hold my stencil in place.

Chalk Paint: 2 Alternatives

1. Inexpensive & Easy to Make Chalk Paint

To make one quart of chalk paint: Mix 8 Tbsp. calcium carbonate + 4 Tbsp water in a clean paint can or container which will hold a quart. Add more water if necessary a little at a time, to get a paste consistency. Stir in 32 oz. (4 sample pots) of flat or satin latex paint until smooth. Pour some of the paint into a clean container to use for stenciling (eases things a little), then cover and store the rest until refills are needed.

A couple of years ago, I discovered that the paint color I chose for our kitchen cabinets in the Arizona vacation house is very similar to Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey. It’s called Behr Classic Silver, and I had some on hand to make chalk paint.

You can use any container to make the chalk paint, and I suggest having 2 containers available. Mix the paint recipe in one, then pour some into a second container for stenciling, refilling as necessary.

Instructions for French Script Stencil Wall

Paint the Wall With Desired Base Color

Make sure to have that base color on hand for any touchups you may have at the end of the stencil project. My base color is Benjamin Moore White.

Place the Stencil for First Section

I began stenciling in the top left corner of the wall, securing the stencil at the ceiling with blue painter’s tape. No measuring…it went directly in the corner.

Pounce & Stamp with Brush

With a small amount of paint on the brush (use a paper towel to pounce off the excess), I pounced it over each letter of the stencil with one hand, moving left to right, while holding the stencil flush with the wall with the other hand.

I applied a fair amount of pressure to ensure that enough paint penetrated the delicately cut script of the stencil. As a result, it was a noisy process, and our son studying for the bar exam was not blessed by resident mama woodpecker.

What About a Paint Roller?

Why take time to pounce rather than roll over stencil? First, the script is very fine so it’s tricky to get the paint through through the stencil with a roller. Second, I wanted an imperfect, faded, authentically hand-written look.

Achieve a Varied, Aged Look

By varying the pressure (as well as amount of paint), you can achieve a lovely imperfect quality. If you aim for a more uniform wallpaper-like look, you could take more time to evenly apply paint and pressure. With my method, you can certainly relax! Even if parts of the script look smudged, globby, or barely there, it’s the look we’re going for!

DIY French Script Stenciled Wall - Hello Lovely Studio. #frenchscript #stenciledwall #stencils

Reposition Stencil for Next Section

To reposition the stencil for the next section, I carefully lifted the stencil and tape and placed it to the right of the first section. I chose not to use registration marks or a level, but rather eyeballed it, using the ceiling as a guide. sliding it to the right with each section, and for the last section at the corner, I bent the stencil to hold it in place.

Don’t worry about perfectly ending a line of text since you can always paint over it with base color at the end! After the first row, you can choose to stencil sections horizontally or vertically. You can also use a level or laser lines for more precision, but my walls are imperfect anyway, so using the ceiling as a guide for the first row and working off of it worked best.

Clean the Stencil

In case you decide to stencil a large wall as I did (mine is more than 15 feet), after a number of sections, the paint will become too thick on the stencil to continue. As a result, it’s smart to have multiples of this same stencil on hand so you always have a clean one!

If you are working with a single stencil, it’s a pain yet necessary to stop and clean paint from the stencil before continuing. I cleaned mine in a large laundry tub sink, allowing the water run to over the stencil and with circular motions, removed paint with a rag. Then I dried it with an old beach towel…well worth the effort!

DIY French Script Stenciled Wall - Hello Lovely Studio. #stencils #frenchscript #accentwall #statementwall #diy #homedecor #bedroomdecor

Stencil the Bottom Row

When I got to the bottom of the wall where there is baseboard, I wanted to leave the same amount of space as the sides and top. It was easy to eyeball it, and after placing the stencil, I placed painter’s tape over the stencil above the baseboard…consequently, I knew at which line to stop.

Where Can You Use French Script?

The beauty of French script (especially when it’s only partially legible like this stencil) is that it is neutral enough to be at home anywhere. You can certainly stencil a bathroom wall, a wall in the dining room, the back of a bookcase, the inside of a cupboard, a tote bag, a canvas, a seat cushion and even a mirror. In case you had not noticed…I have stenciled many mirrors!

Remember the French script stenciled canvas I made for a bathroom in our Arizona house? I painted the canvas Behr Classic Silver (very similar to Annie Sloan Paris Grey) and stenciled on a creamy white (Valspar Salute).

In fact, just to make sure I wanted to tackle the whole wall, I used this stencil on a recycled vintage framed canvas. That way, I could hold it up and see if the scale of the lettering was pleasing. Here it is:

You can see I decided to work from top to bottom after the first two rows…however, it’s your call.

The French script wall certainly reinforces the room’s identity as a European country inspired space which includes a full size bed, desk, piano, reading chair, and French settee.

Achieving a Collected, Evolved Look

I am indeed taking my sweet time decorating this bedroom and hasten to even call what I do decorating. What I enjoy is a collected, evolved, unfussy, non-contrived, effortless French inspired look…a look arising from time, creativity, and treasure hunting.

The settee is a $10 find from Goodwill I transformed with Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter paint (even the fabric), an old French boutis quilt, and also linen pillows.

Since I also use the bedroom as a studio, the space is frequently in disarray! Indeed, dropcloths, art table, paints, giftwrap, half-painted thrift store finds, fabric, and paints are staples in here.

Prayers Urgently Needed

We are living moment to moment as our son remains in critical condition and receives plasma treatments to raise platelet level. He is very brave and strong, and we are praying for a full recovery. I am in constant prayer and often sing to pray. Here is one called Psalm 94 that I wrote in 2014. The chorus is an old hymn.

psalm 94 (verses by michele)

when my foot is slipping/your love steadies me/when anxiety quakes, i turn to thee/oh you have become my fortress/my rock, my safe refuge/and when i long to rest/ i rest in you/rock of ages/cleft for me/let me hide, let me hide/let me hide myself in thee/who is gonna save me/when my world shifts left and right/who can heal the universe with light/oh i need a strong foundation/an unchanging gravity/when i'm on shaky ground/i'll cling to thee/rock of ages…

Posted by Michele McCarty on Saturday, June 28, 2014

If you would like to pray specifically, we need his hemoglobin number to be better and his kidneys, heart, and brain to be spared damage from toxins.

Please pray for my family in Arizona as we are all grieving and heartbroken from the loss of one of our own to Covid. Several family members (including my sister in the video below with my nieces and me harmonizing) are recovering at home from this vicious virus, and the continued separation during a time we would normally be holding each other…it’s just awful.

I miss goofin in a teepee with my arizona girlz.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Your stenciled wall is so unique and lovely. I like the varied, aged look you gave it, and enjoyed reading about how you did it. I hoped you’ve enjoyed sitting back and admiring your accomplishment! I’m especially intrigued by the painted settee including the fabric. I’ve never thought to paint the fabric on a piece of upholstered furniture. Please do tell about that! Would that work on any type of fabric? Also, was the fabric already a light color? And what type of paint did you use. Just so curious! I’m assuming the added French quilt and linen pillows were to make it more comfortable to sit on after being painted?! I’m definitely with you on a collected, non-contrived, unfussy, evolved form of decorating that takes time, creativity, and some fun treasure hunting!

      I have been out of control busy for the past week and still need to pull that room together and finish the decor! Thanks so much for playing along. Yes, you can paint fabric – I have only opted for this when the piece is not valuable and was cheap since there’s always the risk of ruining it. I added a fabric medium to regular latex paint and water. It was green with a dark floral cushion. The paint didn’t cover the dark color well, and you can’t just keep adding layers of paint! So that’s another consideration and is why I wrapped that cushion with the quilt. My suggestion is just to experiment on a cast-off and then decide whether to try it again. I’ll try to do a post on the topic, but I’m horrible about creating tutorials since they involve slowing down to take video and photos, and I’m always short on time! 🙂

    I don’t think I’d have the patience to stencil an entire wall but am very keen to try it on some smaller space (many ideas from what you mentioned as possibilities.)

    I keep hoping for some thrift store piece of furniture I can try fabric painting on….so far no luck 😉

    Your room is so lovely! French decor (like Paris) is always a good idea! 😉

For those of us that can’t renovate for whatever reason, it is a great way to to add beauty and uniqueness. It is what I like to call: Renovate without Renovation 🤣🤣🤣

    Oh, .Michele! Your heart must be so heavy at this time, I hope and pray your son has a complete recovery. And, that your family in Arizona are able to fight off Covid. I can’t believe the number of people who still think it is no big deal. Wear a mask and protect others as they will you. Please!
