Leftovers with Annie: Roller Accent Wall

Featured Video Play Icon

Leftovers with Annie is a weekly series where our host, Annie, gets a mystery product in a bag and challenged to use it in the home. In this week's episode Annie shows you an easy accent wall that uses very little paint. This project requires no taping, just a roller and paint will bring you this unique look to your room.


  1. First, gather any supplies you might need. Here is a list the essentials
  2. Protect your floors with a drop cloth or some other blanket/paper you don't mind getting paint on.
  3. Tape any base boards, just in case there are spills
  4. You may want to tape or mark some boundaries on the wall as a guide
  5. Roll on the paint in the area you choose
    • There is no right or wrong way to roll on this accent wall. You can roll on paint high as a statement piece or roller the paint low to make a faux head board in a bedroom. This is a convenient and quick way to freshen up any room.
  6. Let the paint dry and remove the painters tape, if you used any
