My sweet friend, Sarah, sent me a picture of these amazing paint rollers yesterday, and I was so excited, I knew I had to write a post about them. Plus I didn’t get the project I mentioned photographed. 🙂
The patterned rollers from UK-based “The Painted House” (here’s another one of my recent UK discoveries) have my mind reeling of possibilities. Fabric? Wallpaper? Wrapping Paper? Faces of furniture? Whoa!
Along with the patterned roller itself, you also need to purchase a fabric applicator or a wall/paper applicator. If you want to see how it works, I highly recommend their YouTube videos. Yes, I would do a bit of practicing before I started my project, but the result is beautiful, and you can’t beat the price (less than $80 for fabric and less than $50 for wall or paper applications) for that aged patterned look!
They don’t have many designs, but here are my top three favs:
I love the whimsy of this one and think it would be adorable as an accent wall or nook, a layered look over a sisal or solid rug, or a ceiling in a kids room.
I like the movement of this one, and it would be lovely in a variety of settings.
The chinoiserie feel here is so spectacular and reminds me of the wallpaper in my dining room.
What do you think? Is this a project you think you would tackle? Which pattern is your favorite?
P.S. I also found this company that has lots of rollers. In fact, they have The Painted House patterns, plus more. I’m not sure how they are related, if at all, and though they charge more for their rollers ($59), they do have more patterns to offer. My favorites are this one, this one, and this one.
