While wallpaper is making a resurgence, a whole new generation is discovering one major downside: removal. And though painted patterns for the wall are not exactly new, their benefits and (many) uses are worth looking into.

Clare Bosanquet explains:

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.

She now sells the rollers in her Etsy shop, to save you a trip to Romania. For more information about painting patterns on fabrics and walls and lots of inspiration images, you can visit her blog, The Painted House.
