you could use a mix map one with a wood texture and the other with the painted texture then use a black and white texture in the mix slot to mix the other two together

blends will work to some degree, if you want to be super duper close to it, i would highly recommend substance designer. You can strip the paint off where you need it and reveal underlying materials quite easily. I tried it at work for an hour and got pretty good results - no tutorials. Just got in and played with it, its stupid proof really.
