That you want to use the printer from another room
would indicate that you already have a wireless network going on in your house.
If that is so, then a small Ethernet to USB Print Server would solve your problem. It effectively turns your printer into a Network printer.
Plug the Print Server into the USB port of the Printer, connect ethernet cable from the other side of the Print Server to your Wireless router (or a switch) and there you have wireless print capabilities.
The Laptop communicates with the wireless router and the router passes the print job along to the printer via the ethernet connection and the Print Server.
Reasonably cheap and very efficient
