    Default vaneer off

    I have a beautiful 50-70 year old bedroom set. The vaneer is peeling on the dresser draws. I would like to take the old vaneer off and paint it. What is the easiest way to take the old vaneer off, and get it ready to paint?

    If the veneer is only peeling here and there,I would cut the veneer to the points where it is tight and then remove the loose veneer. I would build up the bared underlying wood with wood filler to blend into the remaining veneer. After sanding smooth, I would prime and paint the entire piece after cleaning and scuff sanding. I am still partial to oil paints for furniture over latex products. It dries much harder and does not have the "gummy" feel that most latexes have. It also is much easier to brush without leaving heavy brush marks.
