Roll-On Wallpaper

Filed under: Cleaning/Decorating — Savvy Housekeeper at 7:13 am on Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I curious about these Patterned Paint Rollers, which let you roll a pattern on your wall to get a wallpaper look in a room. Here is a woman demonstrating the product:

It seems like there are quite a few advantages to these. Cost, for one thing. Wallpaper is expensive. This is the cost of the roller (about $16) plus paint.

There are a lot of creative possibilities here, too. You can have any color combination you want in the room.

And while it looks like these might be a bit of a pain to use–you would have to have a very steady hand to get it look right–hanging wallpaper is a pain too. And if you don’t like the end result, you can always paint over it.

Has anyone used a patterned paint roller? What did you think?

You can get lots of roller-style stamps, and have been able to for years. I guess someone just finally realized that you can use them on more than just paper.
