Thinking about staining your project grey, but don’t know how it will turn out? Here are 15 grey wood stain projects, sorted by color and brand, to compare and inspire!
If you’re a frequent reader of The Handyman’s Daughter, you might have noticed that I’m kinda obsessed with grey wood stain projects! 🙂 I love the texture and depth that comes from real wood, but natural wood colors don’t really work with my decor.
Luckily, there are lots of grey wood stain colors on the market nowadays. But it can be hard to tell how the final result will look from that tiny image on the can! I’ve scoured the internet, looking for projects that used different grey wood stains to compare and contrast. Hopefully this will help you find the perfect color for your own build!

I’ve organized all these grey wood stain projects by brand and color to make it easy to compare. Keep in mind that lighting and photography can change colors significantly, so similar projects may look totally different! The color samples I created for this post use the same lighting and white balance, so it’s easier to compare apples to apples.
If you’re looking for just a hint of gray for that beachy look, try this technique from Canary Street Crafts. Gel stain is easier to control than liquid versions, so you can get just the right amount of coverage.
Hopefully these grey wood stain projects helped you decide on a color for your own furniture build or refinishing task. I kinda want to use them all now!
