    Are you taking about small sections (paint slopped while painting walls) or an entirely painted cabinet?

    • Use Goof-Off for small messes.
    • For entirely painted cabinets you will have a real mess. Remove all doors, drawers, and hardware. Us a paint remover, sandpaper, and get down to original wood to re-stain and finish.
    • Maybe just re-paint to get a new look.
    • Ensure the old cabinets are quality cabinets before going to a lot of work.

  • You can use an orbital sander and sand it off or use a paint stripper like citristrip.

    Try using citristrip! It's the best product I've used to strip paint and it's safe for indoor use.
