Easily Recreating The Look of a Classic Wallpaper: Patterned Paint Rollers

by | Nov 26, 2012 | Accessories

We ran across an interesting idea on The Painted House, which most of you DIY enthusiasts will probably enjoy. Found via FloDeau, the patterned paint rollers can easily recreate the look of a classic wallpaper; if you are willing to take things further, they can even be used to print patterns on various fabrics. Founder Clare Bosanquet discovered the unusual tools in Romania- where many creative folks use them as alternatives to wallpaper. As she further explains, “there are two parts to the roller system: firstly, there are the 6 inch wide, embossed patterned rollers in 9 different designs; then there is a choice of two applicators, one for use on fabric and the other for paper & walls“.

The rollers are reusable and interchangeable. The fabrics have the look of traditional handmade block-printed fabric, and are not for heavy use. Like any other hand-printed fabric, they need very delicate hand washing with a mild detergent. The paper and walls roller gives a sponged, gently handmade look, like old, forgotten, sun-bleached wallpaper. It particularly suits old walls“. Find the idea interesting? Be sure to also check out the video below and see the rollers in action. You can also buy the items on Etsy, for a fair price.
