You can make a grey stain using steel wool soaked in a jar of vinegar https://www.diypete.com/how-to-make-steel-wool-and-vinegar-stain/
You can also dilute latex paint in pastel colors to make a pickled wood finish.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiBPER0ADmQ blue and gray pickle is popular right now.
