For this finished I used Rust-Oleum Weathered Gray stain for the first coat.  I let it dry over night then I distressed the wood.  I used 220 grit to lightly sand, focusing on the edges.  The last color coat was a white glaze (a glazing medium + antique white latex paint).  Finally, the clear coats. Fisherman's Wife Furniture: Master Bedroom Dresser Reveal

Use Minwax Special Walnut stain for the first layer, brushing it on a little at a time, and then wiping it off.  After that dried overnight, use Sherwin Williams Pro Classic water based paint in Jargon Jade, and paint the whole thing.  Once that layer was dry, hit the whole thing with a sander, taking a good portion of the paint layer off.

DIY BARN WOOD :: She stained a piece of scrap board with Minwax white tint base wood stain in Slate and realized it was a bit too dark for her liking so she mixed the stain 50/50 with water which made a big difference. She let it dry over night and the next day used some ASCP in Pure White to white wash over the wood (mixing 1-2 Tbsp. with 1 cup water). She brushed it on then wiped it off with a paper towel. :: CLICK or here's another link: www.hawthorneandmain.com/2014/09/diy-barn-wood.html
