IdeaPaint: Right Brain Meets Left Brain

January 20, 2010

With my Manila adventures becoming more routine, I thought I’d begin sprinkling in a few of the “must share” ideas and products that I come across.  This one is beyond cool.  It’s called IdeaPaint and the basic concept is that you can turn any surface into a Dry Erase Board with the use of this magic paint.  Perfect for work, school or home…with endless options.  Here are some of the suggested uses for it:

  • Desks
  • Doors
  • Walls
  • Hallways
  • Columns
  • Conference Tables
  • Reception Areas/Lobbies
  • Seminar Rooms
  • Cafeterias/Cafes
  • Dorm Rooms
  • Lockers
  • Old Chalkboards
  • Kids Bedroom
  • Kitchen
  • Playroom

What I love MOST about it is that it takes the Left-brained skill of planning & organizing ideas and turns it into a Right-brained creative process!  You get the best of both worlds.  I’m already pondering if my office is going to get a wall of IdeaPaint… the question is not if, just when (Manila vs. our next post).

What I love LEAST is the price point.  IdeaPaint starts at $29.95 for 3 sq. ft. of coverage and goes up to $199.50 for 50 sq. ft. of coverage.  It’s definitely an investment for most people, but with the product’s potential to improve communication and the flow of ideas, that could translate into real $$$ for businesses and busy families.  Hmmm… it always comes down to ROI, doesn’t it??

So, give me some feedback….what space would be ideal in your home, office or school for IdeaPaint?  Any other ideas for creative uses?

    In our pre-FS St. Paul home we had a playroom that we painted one wall with chalkboard paint and another with a magnetic paint. It was great but not quite as cool as when it’s done in Mo Willems’ house –
