My chalkboard was green and hard to write on from years of abuse so I
painted mine last summer. It was kind of messy - I should have covered my
floor first, but I bought the paint at Wal-Mart and 2 cans cost me under
$10. It held up fine for the year, but doesn't hold up to students putting
tape on it. :-(
