A tip for painting something like this that has lots of nooks, crannies, and joints: use spray paint. It’s nearly impossible to hide brush strokes, and it’ll cut your painting time by over half.
A tip for achieving a vintage look: use desaturated colors, and use a different base color if you plan on doing some sanding. It’ll make those “wear marks” look more authentic.
