PAINT IDEAS: ROLL ON PATTERN

Picture a cylindrical rubber stamp inked with paint—and how quickly it could jazz up your space.

When a bookcase is as bland as a blank canvass, it’s tempting to goose its back wall. To wake up this built-in, we removed the shelves, added a base coat of matte white latex, and used a cut-rubber design roller, in a pattern called Quills, to put down feathers in a semigloss finish one vertical row after another—like wallpaper. The tool we used, pictured above, includes a foam roller, which you run through paint before snapping in the design roller. The foam roller holds enough paint for three long rows; to remove any excess before starting the first row, we ran the design roller over paper. (Find a step-by-step, with a tip on how to align the rows, at thisoldhouse.com.) The roller creates a natural frame on all sides; to avoid this, you could roll the pattern on wallpaper liner and paste it in place. —Deborah Baldwin
