So, today I went to the thrift store and found a painting that is perfect for my guest bedroom (I've decided that the guest bedroom and spare bathroom are going to be seaside themed, since I have a ton of decor already for that). BUT the canvas painting came in this really ugly pink frame, so I removed it. Only to discover that the frame I thought I was just going to junk can be reused! So I started peeling this stuff off... but it hasn't all come unglued, and parts are holding steady so I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how to remove this coating from the wooden frame. I'm not even sure what to call it... it comes off like paint chips, but it's smooth like plastic. Here are some pictures... and if someone knows what it's called I might even just be able to google how to remove it, but I've been coming up with nothing.

If it were me, the first thing I would try would be a hair dryer. Put the hair dryer on high and hold it closely to the edges of the pink stuff and see if the heat helps loosen it up.
