After a couple coats of chalk paint, I painted the backs a cream color, then painted over again with gray and then lightly distressed the back in some areas. I also lightly distressed all of the edges.
Then, the fun part! Added some French typography. A big thank you to the Graphics Fairy!! Lots of awesome graphics to choose from there. I went with the French wine maker graphic. It spoke to me. I enlarged the graphic like so, and printed on a couple sheets.
My stupid printer is out of ink, otherwise this would look much better.
