There are 2 things to consider about sanding; 1) you will never remove all of the paint with sanding alone and 2) you will remove any of the original patina. Chemical stripper might be a better option. For the most complete tutorial of refinishing furniture, I recommend you pick up a copy of the book "the Furniture Doctor" by George Grotz. Sorry, but there is a lot more to the answer to your question than I can get into here.
