    Use the 'Rectangle tool?

    I would just create two layers, one black, one grey, and then use the select tool to select most of the black one (leaving a border) and then delete it

    et voila, grey rectangle with black border

    Use the rectangle selection tool, then go Edit > Stroke and set what width you want it to be there.

    Or make a new canvas, use the select tool to make a rectangle, fill it using the brush tool with black, then make a new select area inside that black box to adjust the border size and fill that in grey with the brush tool (its the easiest way for noobs )
