If what you have is milkpaint then I suggest you remove it with household amonia. Brush it on full stregnth, wait five minutes, and scrape off as much as will move with a putty knife. Then scrub the film off with a scouring pad and more amonia, when all the paint is off wipe down with hot water and towel dry. Don't sand for a couple days, use an oil stain and shellac three or four coats, buff with 0000 steel wool. Wax if you wish.
