Dental type scraping tools. Look in the tools section of your local paint supplier.

thanks for responding, but I think I'm going to do the sanding part that another poster suggested. I don't have the patience. I thought I could use a stiff brush to remove the paint. thanks anyway.

I would have a conglomareate of stuff, light paper, heavy paper and a small stiff brush. Yes 3 coats will do you just fine

Sanding will be the good option. Due to this, the wood furnishing will also be done together.
