I'm thinking about doing this to my kitchen, but can't find much information on line. If you've done this, where did you get your roller, and how did you like the finished effect?

However, if you want just a **look**, like a faux finish your best bet is to go to a paint store to look at faux finish samples. This will help you decide if you the technique/texture want, ie sponge paint, rag finish, etc. Depending on the effect you want, they may have a roller you can use for the pattern.
This advice channeled to you via me, from my paint store managing spouse.

I had a professional painter to texture and paint. A little more expensive but well worth it.
