I am not trying to display a picture in JButton but trying to make an image itself a button.

you can use an image as a JButton icon
then you need to remove all extra painting round the edges. Look for a look and feel that supports that (or write your own)
you could also try subclassing and overriding paintComponent()/paint()

Hope I am not asking for too much. It that needs too much code, please ignore ..

you can extend AbstractButton and to paint exactly what you need /in other words only the image/
Also you can use the JButton without border and set only image in it. like in this example :
