Step 1: Gathering supplies
Next, you will need to purchase Rust-Oleum brand ChalkBoard paint. I found plain black at Home Depot for $9.98. For $12.98 you can also purchase tintable chalkboard paint and choose from about 9-12 different colors. You may also want to pick up some sponge brushes for applying the paint at a cost of $.60 each at Walmart.
Finally, you will need chalk, which you can find at Walmart for $.97 for 12 sticks.
