The Painted House : patterned paint rollers

These patterned paint rollers from The Painted House are clever tools for recreating the look of traditional handmade block-printed fabric or wallpaper in your home. Reusable and interchangeable, the rollers come in 9 different designs, with a choice of two applicators, one for use on fabric and the other for papers and walls. Let’s roll !

Buy them on The Painted House (Etsy) shop.

When I stumbled across these paint rollers in a market in Romania I was so excited I bought the lot and spent the next two months of the hiking trip regretting my cumbersome purchase. They have been used there for the last 100 years or so as an alternative to wallpaper. As an ardent upcycler I have been using them ever since to bring unloved fabrics and wonky old walls back to life. I have adapted the traditional roller system for use in fabric printing particularly; there is also a more simple foam roller for paper and walls. – says founder Clare Bosanquet.
