Does anyone have any recommendations, links, or tutorials on how to create a similar effect to this using a normal photo?

My goal is to create a subdued, dream like photo with gritty, tactile texture.

    Open the 'normal photo' in instagram and apply the filters.

Try to look at the results of DeviantArt's query “instagram tutorial”. There should be some action pack IIRC. You could also repeat this query elsewhere (e.g. Google).

If you don't want to do the step-by-step tutorial (in case you need to repeat this process a lot of times, for example), you could download one of the many already-made photoshop actions to imitate instagram effects.

Take a look here for a list of all effects: http://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/articles/10-photoshop-actions-to-create-instagram-style-effects

That particular one you mentioned could be similar to "Pale and bright": http://chic-chick.deviantart.com/art/Bright-and-pale-91781369
