RUST-OLEUM Dry Erase Paint Project Update

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are keeping warm in the sub-zero temperature we’ve been having. Today I want to share another door makeover.

Remember a while back I talked about using Rust-oleum dry erase paint on this door? Well I finally did it.

This project was very easy and straightforward. I started by lightly sanding the door which is very important because you want the surface to be really smooth. After sanding and wiping down the door I primed it.

I know the area around the door looks a bit different because the apartment just went through a major makeover with paint and new furniture (blog-post coming soon)

The Rust-oleum dry erase kit comes in a two-part solution

RustoleumAfter the primer dried I prepped the dry erase paint. I stirred each can individually and then mixed part A with part B and gave it another good stir.

The mixture was very runny so I applied 3 coats waiting 20 min between each coat. I had to wait 2 days for it to fully cure.

I am very happy with the outcome, it looks a 100% better and the door looks very similar to our new wall color.  I can’t wait to use it for our next games night.

What do you think? Is the dry erase paint something you would use?

  2. That’s a great idea! However, I’ve used Rust-oleum dry erase paint and it started staining after a few months. I hope it goes well for you but if it doesn’t work out for you (like it didn’t for me). Look into DrawiTPainT Dry erase paint. It’s the only product I found that guaranteed the wipe. Which is the only important thing about a dry erase surface.
