How To Make A Whiteboard Wall DIY Tutorial

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.

    That is such a cool idea! I know a pub that did this to stop people writing on their bathroom doors, they made the whole thing chalk and it worked

    I’ve heard so much good stuff about Rustoleum but haven’t tried any of their products yet. This looks a fun DIY.
