The Biggest, Cheapest White Board You’ll Find

Jun 7, 2011

It’s always been a dream of mine to have a wall covered in seamless dry erase board (yeah, I have weird dreams). But just imagine having such a large space to brainstorm, draw, write notes, etc. I wanted to have one for the edit suite of Bots High, and I had a solution.

Check out this article on the awesome blog Cool Tools. It gives a few options to do custom dry erase boards, but the cheapest one is to pickup 4′ x 8′ sheets of solid white tileboard. They’re about $13 at Home Depot, however when asking the guy, they’re generally classified as shower boards, not dry erase boards.

Sadly, the edit lounge had too many windows (daylight! pfft) so there wasn’t a lot of backing behind the boards because of the window bay. But it was still very handy and is great for posting to-dos, notes, mind maps, etc, as well as notecards (as you can see in the photo).

My other dream is a wall covered in cork board. Unfortunately cheap showers don’t use cork too.
