We absolutely love the playroom in our new house. It is great to have somewhere that the children can call theirs and get creative, display their artwork and make a mess without me worrying about it. If you missed the tour of our playroom you can see it here.
All three of my children love drawing and writing so I thought a space for them to write and draw would be great. Rustoleum sent me a big box of DIY supplies at the end of the summer and included in there was a whiteboard wall kit. As we have just had the playroom decorated I didn’t want to risk a wall but I thought I would make the back of the door into a whiteboard for them.
The kit contains everything that you need. You just mix part A with part B and stir like crazy. I don’t think I stirred ours enough because the paint was quite runny so stir stir stir!!
You then just roller it on. I marked out lines where I wanted ours to go so it was as easy as rollering between the lines.
Like I said, ours was a bit runny and needed a couple of goes over because of this but I think that was due to me not stirring it enough.
I left it to dry for 4 hours and then it cured for 5 days until we could write on it.
The washi tape peeled off and left us with a whiteboard door! Be careful when you rip the tape off though!
I bought some whiteboard pens from Amazon (affiliate link) which are perfect and rub off the board really well. The girls are delighted with their new space to be creative!
I made a little film of me making the whiteboard wall if you’d like to see it…
Disclosure – we were sent the Rustoleum Whiteboard Kit free of charge for the purpose of this post. All opinions are honest and my own.
