I would try using a paint stripper first. You may have to use it a couple times since it seems like there are a few layers of paint on there. You may discover some pretty wood under there that you could stain!!

After you have stripped off as much paint as you can you should sand it to get all the little pieces off. It will be hard to get all those little ridges, but they sell small sander pieces at Home Depot or Lowes.

I love re-finishing stuff 🙂 Good luck!

For something that intricate, you’re going to probably need to spray paint it to get into all the nooks and crannies.  I agree with pp, go with a chemical stripper and a firm toothbrush to get out as much as you can.
