If you’ve been frustrated with DIY stick-on whiteboard material and whiteboard paint, you’ll definitely want to check out how one Lifehacker reader turned his coffee table into a brain storming station complete with expansive whiteboard surface and fancy trim.
Reader PacmanGhost put a lot of effort into refinishing his coffee table — sanding, putty filling, more sanding, painting with whiteboard paint — but the results were extremely disappointing. PacmanGhost was inspired by the DIY whiteboard workbench surfaces at Atlanta’s hackerspace Freeside and opted to use panel board to create a perfectly smooth and shiny whiteboard table. Check out the gallery below to see the process and his build notes.
