IdeaPaint versus Rustoleum white board paint versus physical white boards

Attn. Coworkers:

I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with IdeaPaint or
Rustoleum White board paint. I have 2 isolated back offices which will
be additional free space for coworkers when my facility The Business
Corners opens in June. I plan on covering at least one wall with a
whiteboard. If I use a paint solution then 3 walls (one floor to
ceiling) would probably be covered in each office. I'm wondering the
pros and cons of each solution. (ease of erasing/ghosting, size,
price, install/prep work, multi-use as a projection surface, etc)

I checked internet prices for a 6' high by 12' whiteboard and it would
run me close to a thousand + tax for each. (and it is 3 panels so I'm
not sure how seamless it would appear)

Ideapaint seems to be significantly more expensive then Rustoleum so
anyone with experience with either one please let me know your
experience.

Thanks for your help.

We use bathroom board from Home Depot or the like

Works great. Just use a good cleaner once in a while and it always goes back to white!

Check out white melamine board at your local home center. While technically
not designed for a whiteboard application, we used it in our training room
on two walls (about 10 sheets worth, but they were like $10 a sheet). We
had a bit of problem with the dry erase marker not always coming off, but we
could use an alcohol/water mix to get it off. I figured that compared to
the "official" whiteboard options we could just replace the walls from time
to time, but never really needed to.

Second that. They cost about $13 each and we framed ours with rough cedar boards that cost $6. I’ve heard them called “Shower Board” too and folks often can’t find them at Home Depot because they go to the lumber section. Go back to where they have wainscoting and make stuff for shower enclosures.

So would you just use the shower board or apply the whiteboard paint on top of that?

Shower board works fine all by itself. It does get dingy with lots of use and more so if you use harsh cleaners like windex or clorox. We make a point to erase them every day and this helps.

We have clear DIY boards at Cohere. We bought the Lexan (clear plexi)
in large sheets wholesale, cut them ourselves and attach to wall with
cheap silver hardware. A large board 8'x4' probably cost about $40
ish--I can't remember exactly. Here's a link to the instructions

Hi all,

We opted for ideapaint in our main conference room at Two Rivers. about $200 for the 50 sq ft. box.

We painted one conference room. the key is to sand the walls thoroughly.

will look into the clear board for the other conference room. thanks for the ideas all!

Replying via Web just in case:

John: I bought 9 cans of Rustoleum Whiteboard and 9 of the Magnetic
one via Amazon... they should be here on Monday (I'm in Panama, so
imagine).

We had one can of each and last night started painting a corner of the
future whiteboard... I will let you know on Sunday how it went.

Ideapaint looks really great, at least on their site and YouTube
channel, but it's really expensive.

I read a couple of reviews about Rustoleum: if the surface isn't flat
enough, it doesn't work so well... so we did some gysum (dry wall?)
and then applied the magnetic one.

I'll get back to you with more info... and pictures!

H

We used Ideapaint for 100 square feet. The wall needs to be perfectly smooth, then if you use the primer they recommend you need to sand again.

It works great and people love it. (pic #2 - http://indieballard.com)

We just did 150 sq ft in IdeaPaint. Love it! It was a bit expensive
but in evaluating the other options, this gave us what we were looking
for.

Thank you all for your valuable input. I'm leaning towards whiteboard
paint as a whole wall solution but will probably also try the lexan in
another room. (might put a background color behind it so the markers
show up better.) I'll post pictures once I make a decesion, thanks
again I appreciate the help.

pros and cons of each solution. (ease of erasing/ghosting, size,

price, install/prep work, multi-use as a projection surface, etc)

I checked internet prices for a 6’ high by 12’ whiteboard and it would

run me close to a thousand + tax for each. (and it is 3 panels so I’m

not sure how seamless it would appear)

Ideapaint seems to be significantly more expensive then Rustoleum so

anyone with experience with either one please let me know your

experience.

Thanks for your help.

At Workantile, we have shifted to old-fashioned chalkboards. They are relatively inexpensive, chalk is relatively inexpensive, and they are easier to clean. If you leave dry erase marker on a whiteboard for a long period of time, it can get difficult to erase. That is never an issue with chalk.

Attn. Coworkers:

I’m wondering if anyone here has any experience with IdeaPaint or

Rustoleum White board paint. I have 2 isolated back offices which will

be additional free space for coworkers when my facility The Business

Corners opens in June. I plan on covering at least one wall with a

whiteboard. If I use a paint solution then 3 walls (one floor to

ceiling) would probably be covered in each office. I’m wondering the

pros and cons of each solution. (ease of erasing/ghosting, size,

Ooh neat! How hard is it to keep them clean? And do you have carpet in your space?
