Today we finally used our whiteboard.
We really enjoyed it. It was convenient for writing down a word that someone needed spelling. It was great for demos on a subject that needed a bit more explanation before doing a work sheet. It was fun and entertaining for Indy without using up half my printer paper :)
I loved the wall and the table and would recommend doing the table to any homeschool family thinking of using whiteboard (or dry erase paint). I took a picture of the wall but pictures of white walls don't show so great - hmm wonder why? :)
What I wasn't thrilled about was the wipe down. We have a dry erase eraser. It wiped it down but I could still see a trace of the marker let behind.
HOWEVER it did wipe down completely with a damp cloth. If you use a whiteboard then you know that you can't write on a wet whiteboard.
We wiped down with the eraser during a lesson, and with a damp cloth between lessons. This worked well.

The quality may be a bit better, but $534 worth? No Way!
