There are several painting techniques to paint a frame.  In my opinion, there is not one right answer.  It depends on your preference, home decor, and style.

Some people prefer a finish that is consistent. Others prefer a choppy or chippy finish.  

Painting with a brush will not be as consistent as painting with spray paint.  Decide what you want the end result to be then pick the method that works for you.
