BRING THE WOODS INDOORS

Have you ever used a patterned paint roller? Well we tried one out in the baby’s room! We bought the No. 6 patterned roller from ETSY shop The Painted House for $52CAD.

The Painted House is based in the UK and you can purchase either a fabric applicator or one for walls/ hard surfaces. The Painted House

We thought it would be cute to do one focal wall in the baby’s room. Nothing to bold but something to add some fun in a tiny space. The roller is pretty easy to use but we do suggests that you test it out on newspaper before you start on a wall or fabric. It does take some adjusting at first to get the roller to smoothly roll down the wall.

You might remember a few posts ago that we freshly painted the room with Elephant from Style at Home paint collection. Before we began, we taped off a boarder all along the four sides of the wall we wanted to work on.

The roller needs to be charged-up first with paint, we picked a bright white in a Pearl finish. Then tested it out on newspaper that we placed on the wall to make sure the patterned roller was completely covered in paint.

The roller needed to be charged-up about every fourth time down the wall. You can see the pattern emerge! Take a good look you should see a moose, buck, doe and baby deer.

Within hour and a half we removed the tape and had the focal wall complete. We are so happy with the outcome. Friends that have seen the wall couldn’t believe we did it with a roller, they asked if it was wallpaper!

The wall looks textured and you can make out the sweet woodsy print.
