Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have great plans for the weekend. I’m going to have an amazing weekend! I know that in advance because I finally completed unpacking and will be relaxing this weekend. I will be doing a big fat nothing and I love it – can’t wait!
So far our move to San Antonio from Los Angeles has been a huge success and we very happy here. It’s fun trying out new restaurants and checking out all the sights to see. With all the exploring and unpacking, I have had zero time to do any DIY projects. But there’s one project my husband would love for me to start – he wants to paint his office into a huge whiteboard. There’s lots of hype about chalkboard paint but what a lot of people may not know is that it’s also possible to make your own whiteboard… with whiteboard paint. My husband discovered whiteboard paint earlier this year and has been wanting me to design and help him create one for his office. In his line of work, he is constantly giving presentations with co-workers and clients and having entire walls covered in whiteboards would help him out tremendously.
The company that makes whiteboard paint is IdeaPaint. I am not a big white board fan but I have to admit, the stuff is pretty cool.
And it comes in colors!
When my husband first approached me about the whiteboard project, I didn’t understand why he didn’t just put up a bunch of whiteboards. The reason is that painting an entire wall looks better and it’s possible to paint all the way to the corners between walls and have several walls painted together.
Another benefit is that many dry-erase surfaces contain formaldehyde, which slowly releases gas and diminishes indoor air quality for the life of the product. IdeaPaint is formaldehyde-free, conforms to all U.S. EPA regulations and does not produce any harmful gas once it’s dry.
IdeaPaint is flexible and easy to install. It can be applied to anything you can paint – drywall, plaster, chalkboard, whiteboard, tables, bikes, garden gnomes, small ceramic cats. Just prep and prime the surface before you start. IdeaPaint will be as smooth as the surface you paint. My husband actually wants to not only paint a wall but also paint the top of his desk so he can take notes and diagram while on conference calls.
Here’s more interesting things that can be created with whiteboard paint.
