We have an old piece of furniture that my wife wants to refinish white for my daughter's room. The piece is a maple piece varnished with a gloss finish (but finishes are my weak point so I can't tell if it's an oil based varnish or not...).
I'm assuming I need to sand, but do I need to sand the finish right off, or just score it so the paint stays? There are a lot of intricate edges on the piece, and sanding by hand might be difficult. Would I be able to use my sandblaster for the those areas?
Also, what kinds of paint would people recommend?
