There are a couple of ways to remove paint from furniture, but the easiest and less time consuming is paint stripper/ remover. Just remember to wear latex gloves and eye protection. If these products can dissolve paint just think what they could do to your eyes and skin.
Here is how I strip paint, varnish, polyurethane or nearly anything else from wood surfaces. First, go to your local home store and pick up the following items you will need for stripping paint from furniture.
1. A can of paint stripper. Look, or ask for the gel type of stripper. It tends to stick to the furniture much better than the liquid type.
2. You will need lots and lots of rags so just buy one of the small bags or boxes your home store carries.
3. A stiff plastic putty knife approximately 2 inches wide for scraping the stipper off.
4. A small disposable paint brush for spreading the stripper.
Be sure to give yourself plenty of space for working on your project with a lot of newspapers underneath to catch the excess stripper.
The biggest mistake people make when stripping furniture is not giving the stripper enough time to work effectively. After you apply a good, heavy coat of paint stripper leave the project alone for at least 30 minutes. You'll know if the right amount of time has passed because to paint will come right off. If not, and because you lost patience, then it can become a nightmare.
Two basic things to remember: patients and lots of stripper.

With a tin of paint and a brush or roller. First, be sure all of the old finish has been removed. Then prime and paint with paint specifically prepared for floors. Please note that painting a hard wood floor usually decreases the value of the property. Consider refinishing instead. Older floors were made with fairly thick boards, so they can hold up to several strippings and refinishings.
There is a product called Goof that does a pretty good job. Assuming the paint is fresh, if you are quick about cleaning the Goof off, it shouldn't lift the finish on the floor. Depending on the finish on the floor and how long the paint has been there, you might be able to scrape or peel it off with a fingernail.
Oil based paint is best removed with mineral oil or heavy cream like a cold cream. Do not use paint thinner on your skin, it is way too harsh. For latex paint, use soap and water, if the paint is dried use hand cream of baby oil.
