The painted on whiteboards I’ve seen are never as good as the premade panels of the stuff at the big box stores. They don’t seem to clean/erase as well. I think it’s because the rolled on paint has a faintly pebbled finish and dust nibs dry on the surface. So, if you really want to do it this way, I think the Bondo step will be critical to getting a very smooth and flat surface.

Alternatively, if you wanted a good exercise in finishing wood to be very smooth and very glossy, you could look into how they finish guitars and other similar items with high gloss (mirror like) smoothness. Make something smallish (a box) and get the lid as shiny as shiny can be.
