i used industrial paint stripper and steel wool, then i sanded it down, the i used a 2 in 1 paint (2coats) and then i put on like 3 layers of primer and it looks like its professional. Total time took me like close to 2 days i think

Well, I think the best way to do it is maybe I guess 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of paint, and 3 coats of clear coat. But I saw that on a how-to for a frame.
