Whiteboard Paint



I just read over at Design Hole (who twittered me about my book giveaway) that there's now a whiteboard paint out there on the market. This is news to me and apparantly lots of companies are making it, including Idea Paint and Rust-oleum. Jennifer suggests using it in your laundry room to note your stain removal cocktails or on furniture and accessories to create personalized gifts. I can see lots of fun paint projects appearing soon!

I saw this at the home improvement store a couple of weeks ago... have not figured out how I would want to use it yet though :)

I love it - we use this in our office but it's perfect for home as well. Thanks for sharing.

i stumbled across this just a few weeks ago myself. in addition, there is "paint" that turns any surface into a "magnetic" surface as well. would love to combine the two...how fun!

Yes! I've heard of this recently! And, I think there are non-stinky pens now too - fun!

I was extremely disappointed with the rustoleum paint. The markers never fully erase, and it has ruined my wall. This was a huge waste of time and effort. :(

It can be a pain, but I always recommend testing first (even with regular latex for color). If you want a full whiteboard wall take a look at a product called Memerase. It's great stuff that I've used on offices.

Dry Erase Whiteboard Paint said...

The dry erase whiteboard paint can be done great on an interior wall - a little bit of prep goes a long ways. I recommend lightly sanding the wall and then wiping off with a damp rag. Let it dry and then begin the whiteboard painting. It usually takes several coats, you want to let it partially dry between (~1 hr). If you spend the time up front to get it right, the results are awesome!
