Make Your Own Whiteboard

As an entrepreneur my whiteboard has become a must-have for my startup. Brainstorming ideas, sketching website designs out, and working out problems are all a part of using the big whiteboard that’s hanging up on my wall. I paid around $50 for mine, but you can cut that price in half by making your own:

whiteboard…some white tileboard from the bathroom section of Home Depot will work just as well. 4×8 sheets are under $20, letting you cover an entire wall for less than the cost of buying something off-the-shelf. Cover that woodgrain panelling with dry erase paradise using the tips from Kevin Kelly’s Marker Board Walls.

About David Askaripour

I've been thinking about life, existence, and truth for as long as I could remember. When I was about 7 I remember getting a headache trying to figure out who created God...and if someone created him, then who create him? I love investigating and testing, taking nothing for truth that outside my direct experience. At the age of 12, I started my own candy selling business; it grew so large that the principal ended up closing me down (but that was just the beginning...) Through my videos and articles, I share my journey with the world.

    Great post David! I love the decent sized whiteboard in our apartment at school (makes for fun during parties) that is about 2 feet by 4 feet, but after seeing this, it may be time to upgrade!

    This do-it-yourself whiteboard works like a charm. Not too long ago I built one for myself for just under $30.

    Perhaps I need to update my sloppy post-it wall. I love post-its but, looks like the white wall is more cost effective and probably more environmentally sound. Thank you. I am re-building my office – since I recently moved. I have less than half the space I used to have, and am going to add a white board to the mix. This was very helpful.

    yea this seemed good right off the bat, but i want to be able to hold on to my ideas. I get too many ideas per day to not erase and write, etc. Thanks though.

    I am a teacher and will cut one sheet up to make individual whiteboards for my students. Anyone have any ideas on how to seal the edges?
