the problem with spot painting you need to remember where you painted it. Paint a coat of solid color (or stain may work, I’ve never tried it) then paint over it with a final coat. Then hit the edges (and other spots if desired) with some medium grit sand paper, being careful to not go through the base coat.

the idea is to make it look worn, so you want to hit spots that would wear naturally, like edges, around knobs or pulls, were feet will scuff, etc.
