    Default Removing stray paint from nice varnish?

    Hi all,
    At some point in the long history of my condo (built 1901), it was painted by a fool who got globs of stray paint on the lovely varnished trim. I am hoping, though I know this is a long shot, that there is some way to remove the paint without having to take off all the varnish and start fresh.
    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    If you are lucky its latex paint. There are latex paint removers which will not affect the varnish. Start with that and let us know.

    If its oil based you are SOL.
