Unfortunately, I've deleted the pics from PhotoBucket, but I've gotten good results from painting the wood (and I'm assuming you mean REAL wood) with thinned acrylic light to medium gray. Vary the gray tones for more realism. When dry apply a black wash to accent the grain. Do some light and patchy sanding in different areas. Works for me. :wave_1:

I found an example: This is a piece of wood strip used in model ship building. Originally it was a brown-ish color. I gave it a coat of thin acrylic gray, and when dry, a wash of black oil paint.

Results and shades vary with type of wood used, ie; balsa, basswood, etc. Distressing with sandpaper, razor saw, and files also help the ageing process. :wave_1:

Personal experience: use dark brown oil paint instead of black for the wash. Black is too colourless.
