Paint Roller was invented by a man named Norman Blakey in Toronto in 1940. Prior to this, the paint job was done by a professional stucco brush.

Blakey was born in Pierson, Manitoba in 1891 and consulted with a textile expert, Tom Hamilton, in Alberta. In an interview with the Globe and Mail in 1984, Hamilton recalled the scene at the time and said that Blakey asked him what kind of fabrics can have hard fluff on the surface. He asked Blakey what he wanted to do. Blakey said, making paint rollers. Then he further explained his idea, using a "7" shaped handle, and mounted a hairy roller on the transverse head.

"The best fabric I could think of at the time was to cover the green mohair velvet used on railway passenger cars. So I sold him a bundle, told him how to cut, and suggested that he stick it on the roller with glue. Later he came back to thank me for the suggestion and gave me a paint roller he made and a tray made by a blacksmith. None of us at the time thought how important his invention would be.
