You painted the trim and now want to remove the paint to reveal the coating that was on the trim before you painted it?

There's nothing that will do that I'm afraid

It's relatively simple and easy to do what you want if the two paints were different chemistry. If the old paint was oil based and the new paint was a latex, just clean the latex paint off the oil based paint with xylene.

Otherwise, I have to agree with the previous post. Your only option would be to paint over the new paint with new paint of the old colour.
