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. Basically rubbing it off once I rubbed it on, because I didn't want to cover up the wood tone underneath.
