Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SheetzInc Overall it's a worthwhile product.
I painted my dry erase kit over drywall which had three layers of paint on it. I sanded a 6'x6.5' area first with 120 grit then 220. It appears smooth but not as smooth as an off the shelf white board. Erasing works very well but is slightly different process than a typical whiteboard. If you just use a dry eraser it will remove almost no ink at all. Use the Expo dry erase cleaner and it wipes right off like a white board typically does. I did however find that the Expo pink dry erase marker does not erase so well; even with the cleaner. It left an orange tint behind that will not erase even with alcohol. Test all your markers on a scrap piece before testing them on your wall and you'll be fine.

I am a contractor and I have extensive experience with all types of wall coverings. I followed the instructions for this product exactly. It performs horriblly the only thing that erased common name brand dry erase marker from it was a "magic eraser" from Mr. Clean. I tested and the "magic eraser" works on regular semi gloss too. In other words you might as well write on your wall and use a magic eraser and save yourself money and time. In fact the semigloss held on after the "magic eraser" was used. The dry erase paint came off. I am not a Rustoleum basher either their other products are just fine (at least every other one I have ever used). In short this product is a total waste.

I applied this product to drywall beneath our basement stairs in my 3 & 5yr olds "fort". I applied on top of the Rustoleum's magnetic paint. It was a disaster.
The paint took much longer to dry than the alloted time to have the mixed solutions together. So in order to apply a second coat, I had to purchase another can of a paint.
Now that its done, I can't get the ink to erase. I've tried 3 different brands of pens and 3 different types of cleaners/erasers. The worst part is seeing the disappointment in my boys eyes after they waited so patiently for this process to be completed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tnywndy Should have just bought a white board
I was so excited about painting a white board area in my kitchen for our family to use as a "command station." Despite following the directions, this was an epic fail. The paint apparently continued to drip well after I was done painting, and the next morning I woke to dried drips all down the wall that were definitely not there after I finished! I'm bummed that it looks so poor and may not function as well as I thought after reading other reviews. :( I'm hoping that once the three day waiting period is up, the board will function well even though it looks awful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RiTESister Great Results
Used this paint for our new office, bought 7 cans of the stuff of cover a 15 x 10 ft area wall. I've read so many reviews about how to apply and want pens to use etc. so I was a little worried but it came out great. We followed the instructions on the tin and actually left it for 5 days after paint to dry even though it said 3 day was sufficient. I have used both low odour and regular dry erase pens in several colours, both types comes off great with a whiteboard eraser and if faint lines are left use the whiteboard care spray and they lift right out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon DOESN'T ERASE
I have applied the paint to the wall following the instructions to a T! I have used several different dry erase marker brands and none of them seem to be able to erase the marker. I even tried to use the "magic eraser" to get it off the wall and that won't even work (if anyone has used a magic eraser then you know it will erase anything). Very dissapointed as I was excited to use it for math with the upcoming semester.

The walls of my 5 year old sons room where always his favorite place to make artwork. Even with the easy clean paint on the walls, it was still a chore. I saw this product in my local Home Depot as I was looking for a dry erase or black board to mount in his room to try to minimize my cleaning. Mixing it was easy, it applied to the wall just like paint, and it solved my little "artwork" problem.
