I found a couple of ladder back chairs in our storage facility that my daughter wants to take with her to college. One of chair legs had some dried paint spatters on it.

To remove them, I used a Scotch Brite pad and Murphy's Oil Soap. It removed a little of the stain in some areas where the paint was a little thicker and I had to scrub a little harder. To fix this, I used some Old English scratch cover polish and a soft cloth to put the stain back in those areas.

The chairs aren't perfect, but will be fine for my daughter and her roommate to use in their apartment. I wouldn't recommend this for antique or really nice furniture, but it works for furniture that doesn't have to be in mint condition.

My niece has been painting by numbers with oil based paint, a number of spots of the paint have stained my oak kitchen table. How do I remove these spots without damaging the finish on the table?

If you take a Q-tip possibly with acetone on it, and carefully wipe it across the oil based paint on the table, that will help remove it, or mineral spirits/paint remover on a Q-tip, or gently scrape it off, that "might" work too - but honestly, there will be some finish removal because the oil based paint is "painted ontop" basically.

Take your time, and you may be able to only "get the applied paint" that you want to remove without going too deep that you've gotten into the finish of the table.
