Patterned Paint Rollers

I love wallpaper in certain spaces, like this one designed by Sarah Richardson.  It add such a fun pattern and color that really couldn’t have been put anywhere else.

Did you know that there are patterned paint rollers?

I first saw this image on The DIY Adventures.  It immediately intrigued me.  So, I went to the source.  This means you can get the look of wallpaper for less and with a technique other than a stencil.  But, doesn’t it seem like you have to have a pretty flat non-textured wall for it to work well?

Check out how this room turned out.

However, it does seem like it could work well on fabric.

It could also work on gift wrapping.  What would you use them for?

Check them out at The Painted House.  What do you think?  Is it something you need?

  1. How fun is that!!! Love the idea of using it on fabric and wrapping paper :)

  2. I’ve seen this before, but it looks like you’d need a LOT of patience and a steady hand. But your point about painting wrapping paper – I could do that!

  3. These look very clever! I am going to check them out. Thanks,

  4. You know what struck me? How very straight and steady you would need to be on a wall. I think I would stick with wrapping paper!

  5. That is beautiful, easier to get rid of than wallpaper.

  6. I could see a use for these with many things. Very cool looking. I’ve seen something similar to these rollers somewhere but can’t remember where. I’m not sure if I would spend the money on more than one roller though. Very unique & versatile. Kristy, have you tried them?

  7. Ummm… YES! You had me at ‘it could work on fabric’!!!! I NEED some of those – now to find the funds for all the stuff I think i ‘need’!

  8. I’d love to try these out on furniture–maybe a dresser. But wouldn’t it also be fun to roll a wall or room and then hand paint some aspects, randomly? I’d love to find a geometric pattern. Had no idea they made these–so glad I know now!

  9. Oh goodness, I love the rollers. I’ve wanted to stencil a wall for a while but i can’t get over the amount of work. I bet this is much easier. I need to look into them. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I haven’t seen these, but definitely am intrigued! I would definitely use one of these. :-)
