We have some nice oak paneling with picture frame molding that we would like
to paint. Is there some sort of remover that will allow me to take the
glossy finish off so that the new paint will adhere properly? Thanks.
Seems a real shame to paint "nice oak panelling", since painting is pretty
irreversible and some day someone will say "look, the former owners painted
that nice oak paneling". However, if you use "liquid sandpaper", you should
get decent adhesion. That said, it is generally not easy to get paint to
stick well over varnish, since often people have used wax or furniture
polish or stuff with silicone.
