Whether you are using paint or a white panel board, the first step is to choose a place for it. You may want to post it either on a wall or on a stable piece of wood. Dry-erase paint can work, but it can also have some problems when used on certain materials. Check the instructions of the paint to find out how it works best; otherwise, stick to using a purchased board.

You can fine a suitable board at retailers like Lowe's and Home Depot. Suitable white board material may come under names like White Panel Board, White Tileboard, Tile Wall Panel or Showerboard. Some shower liners will also work for this project. These boards tend to be floppy, however, so do not expect them to stand alone.
