How can I renew a butcher board that's already painted with varnish?



It’s an old butcher board I have, that is used as a table, and I want to remove the old varnis and to paint with a black washing paint.

    If it’s old, the butcher board is possibly stained. Clean the table with a degreasing solution, like water, a little vinegar, and a few drops of Dawn. Dry the table. Then sand the varnish off on all sides. After sanding, you could use the paint you want, then seal it all with a clear oil-based sealer like polyurethane. You may have a treasure ☺️
