I'd like to bang the person who last painted the trim in my house. A thick coat of latex over totally un-prepped painted surfaces. The house is old and the trim is pretty ornate so I don't really want to strip it. I got the old pocket doors working now and trying to prep the trim around the doors. When I hit it with sandpaper it just peels off. Try to feather the edges of the blob that came off and it just continues unrolling. Arghhhhhhhhhh
Mostly letting off steam, but if someone has a viable solution short of stipping I'm all ears.

Well if it comes off easy with the sand paper, then just keep sanding it. It will be worht the effort to have a nice sound surface.

If it's peeling off, maybe it will peel off more easily if you heat it a bit. Try hitting a small area with a hair dryer set on high and see if it comes off more easily. Just something to try...
