Don’t use whiteboard wall paint — it gets dirty no matter how often you clean it.

I love whiteboards. I have one in my home office for work brainstorming, and one in my garage/workshop for sketching out furniture and such. Both were actually acquired as my clients were throwing them away after office remodels

I wonder if it would be easier to get a sheet of glass and put it over a white wall. I feel like glass is easier to clean. But I lack proof...

Good idea. Or paint the back white

We had a black board paint that covered one whole wall. Similar to one you’d have in schools. Fun to work through projects and brainstorm with SO!

You can buy ones that stick into the wall on Amazon

Don’t want that evil in my house

Glass on wall, cheap whiteboard, or black metal (use chalk pens) depending on your decor if you don’t want it obtusely intruding your space
