comment How can I paint over a glossy surface that might contain lead paint?
It's latex. And the old paint is oil based, judging by the way it flakes off.

comment How can I remove paint from an indoor brick wall?
I second this. Paint solvent is nasty, but it can get in the pores of the brick and remove the paint. My wife and I did this a few years ago to get paint off a brick fireplace. While it was hard work, we eventually got all the paint off. We really had to saturate the brick to get the last remnants off.
