We tested out a few different combinations to get a more gray washed  looked. Ultimately, we decided on using a combination of stain and white  washed paint (paint mixed with water) to achieve a...

To accomplish that weathered wood finish, I first rubbed Minwax "Special Walnut" over the entire piece. Once that had completely soaked in, I rubbed a light coat of Rustoleum "Weathered Grey" over the entire piece.
