The picture shows weathered wood, sometimes called barn wood.
There seems to be no sheen at all. Very flat finish.
Pick the color close but still darker than the picture then dilute it by about 60%. The stain will mostly be sucked up by the wood and not build on the face of the boards. When doing it this way you are more in control of the color because your applying it at a 40% rate. If you want it darker you can give it another coat or add color to your diluted mix.
I donít see much distressing on the wood in the picture. Sometimes a wire brush wheel is used with the grain to pronounce the grain more. I donít see that. Only the natural knots in the lumber.
If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
