    I would just sand it to remove any gloss. Prime it with KILZ or BIN, then paint with the finish pain.

    Try using Citristrip which is a safe non-toxic stripper.

    Don't paint it! glue some fabric or paper to the inside, but don't paint it!

    You can use a primer like Zinsser bullseye 1-2-3 it will prime anything then paint, good luck with this I would love to see the finished re silt.

    If you use chalk paint, you won't have to sand or prime it first.

    This looks like a stick on label to me. If it is, it will probably just take lots of patience and will come off much like wallpaper...a speck at a time! Then once you get the label off, try "goo gone" to get rid of the glue!
