It's called Clear Chalkboard Coating by Americana. I got a sample in my swag bag from SNAP! last year and finally got around to trying it when I decided that I wanted to create a chalkboard wall for the loft bedroom, but wanted to use paint we already had.

The process was extremely simple.
I started out by just painting the wall the color I wanted it (Magnetite by Martha Stewart.) Then I applied the clear chalkboard coating...
1. I rounded up a foam roller and a paper plate - way to recycle an old Halloween plate, huh? - and poured a small amount of the coating onto the plate.
2. I used the roller to coat the wall vertically, and then again horizontally.
3. Once the wall had dried thoroughly, I seasoned it by rubbing chalk over the entire thing and then washing it off with a damp rag.
And that's all there is to it. A chalkboard wall out of any type of paint you already have!
