how can I remover primer from a stair bannister

My daughter accidently primed a bannister that should have been stained. Can this thin layer of primer be removed and the wood then stained?

I think the only real way to go about doing this would be to sand it down. And if it's the whole banister..you might be in for a lot of work.

thanks, I didn't know if a stripper would work or not, sounds like a sanding is the way to go

Welcome to the forums dwspringer1!

Strippers don't always work well on a thin coat of paint/primer. If you have trouble removing it all with sanding, you might try scrubbing the wood with lacquer thinner or liquid deglosser - be sure you don't let any solvent drip and sit on any paint or stain as it might harm the looks of the finish. After the solvent dries, sand some more
