This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in November of 2018. It's a simple fact of life: kids love drawing on things they're not supposed to, and that includes your walls. Instead of giving up and letting them lower the resale value of the house, you can turn an entire room into one big whiteboard. They can decorate their space according to whatever's popular this week, only to erase it and start over once the next big fad comes along. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best dry erase paint on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 01, 2018:

The ability to choose between white and clear paint is offered on many selections on this list, and is a great addition for those who aren't just looking to create a traditional whiteboard. The ability to apply onto different surfaces may also be enticing for those who want to paint a child's table. Be warned that application is difficult for many of the lesser options, so if you aren't seasoned at applying paint, it may be wise to have a professional do it.
