I have an oak built-in that a customer wants painted white as part of a remodel I am doing. All the trim and some new built-ins are going to be white and leaving this one stained is not an option. I am using BM Impervo for all of it. The built-in is stained oak with gloss poly over it. I had to think but I have never painted something with poly on it. So my question is what is the best way to do this? Chemically strip the poly? Sand it off? Sand it rough and then prime? Just paint over it?
Anybody done this where it had to be done right and not a hack job?
