If it just the color that you don't like paint it with a different color.

If you want to use a natural wood finish the you need to use a stripper. AND LOTS AND LOTS OF WORK.

well.....the paint job isn't that great on the crown molding its kinda gobbed up in a few places, i was thinking about a chemical stripper, but didn't know if it would take all the latex paint off like i wanted...I was going to just buy more, but its $6 per foot, and I have 47 feet of wall to do

The easiest method of doing your job is using the PEEL AWAY 7 product which will do the job in one application and will keep the natural color of the wood (www.peelaway.coim)
