Magnetic paint and chalkboard paint may be getting nudged out of the way for dry-erase paint! When we came across this photo we stopped to check it out because of the beautiful tree mural, but when we read more we learned about IdeaPaint which these parents are using as a drawing surface for their five-year-old daughter. "IdeaPaint is a patent-pending single-coat roller-applied paint that transforms any smooth surface into a high performance dry-erase writing surface." We can think of tons of great uses for this paint in an office setting, but also for the home: calendars, schedules, grocery lists, etc.
Shannon Jordan, one of the contributors to 2modern Design Talk, the terrific blog of modern design store 2modern posted about using IdeaPaint as a canvas in her daughter's bedroom. Not only is the result beautiful (and wait 'til her daughter really gets going), but it highlights a terrific use for this intriguing new product.
