Paint your desk

Think outside the box with whiteboard paint

 Are you a doodler? Can you never find a pen and paper when you need to take a message? If you don't write something down instantly, does it slip your mind? Create your own fantastic home office feature, it's discreet, useful and very practical. Using whiteboard paint on a desk can be a creative and functional way to turn your workspace into an interactive and organized area. Whiteboard paint allows you to write with dry erase markers directly on the surface, turning your desk into a writable space.

This soloution allows you to have a smaller area to make notes than painting an entire wall. Plus when not in use you just wipe off the writing and it looks like an ordinary desk. This is great for confidentiality, a discreet look if you don't have a dedicated office room and is great for the environment too.
