Hello, Dry Erase WALL!
Are you a sticky note, checklist, daytime-planner kind of person? 🙋🏼♀️ Do you think more clearly by doodling or writing things down? I sure do! And if you’re like me, you probably have a whiteboard somewhere in your house with a family calendar or agenda to keep your busy clan organized. I sure do love checking things off my to-do list. 😍
And maybe you have small toddlers or kids at home that like to express themselves through art on your walls? 🙃 We’ve got ya covered! If this sounds like you, we’re sharing a pretty nifty and easy DIY solution that allows kids and adults to be creative – AND drawing on the wall is allowed! 😱
Would you believe me if I told you that it IS possible to have a whiteboard wall in your home (instead of a small board) – and you can easily make one yourself? Yep, you sure can! Thanks to dry-erase paint from various retailers, you can easily create a whiteboard wall on just about any surface – walls, tables, you name it!
You can choose white high gloss paint (for a traditional “whiteboard” area) or a clear high gloss paint if you’re wanting to transform any colored wall into a drawing board. Then grab the markers and let the kids and adults go wild!

On the fence? Check out these customer reviews for IdeaPaint:
“At our workplace, we have entire walls painted with this stuff and it’s great. If we need to draw something during a meeting, we walk up to the wall and do so. I saw how great it was at work and decided to paint a wall in my home with it. This was 7 years ago, and the paint has held up well!”
“I wanted a focal point for the creative space in my office so we painted a wall with IdeaPaint. It erases and cleans to look new, has a crisp look and we’ve found it really sparks creative sessions during meetings.”
“Very high quality and easy to paint. If you’re like me and have zero DIY skills (I need instructions to change a light bulb), be afraid not. Just follow the instructions carefully and you’ll be fine. The toughest part was letting it cure for a week. I had this urge to paint on my new slick dry erase wall, but was able to stay disciplined and the results are outstanding.”
