its not a stupid idea.
but ur right. u should take your time.

paint is never something that should be rushed. now you have to sand the piece down and redo.
wet sanding between coats always helps in a very shiny finish

My first attempt at painting didn't look so hot either. The second time looked a lot better. If I were to do it again, it would look perfect. Too bad, I'm so lazy.

Try doing a 1000 grit sand or wet sand (wet would be better) after your prime. Then lay a little bit thicker clearcoat than what you did. It should come out a LOT smoother

Take your time, and do your research on proper techniques for painting, and it should turn out great. That piece would look good painted black.
