Answer for Painting Varnished Doors

I don't have a photo, but can tell you as a mother, that white doors will show fingerprints, etc. Think twice before doing it.

Varnished interior doors.

I have dark varnished interior doors (hollow) and would like to paint them white. Has anyone else tried this? I would love to see before and after photo's.

Answer for Painting Varnished Doors

Instead of sanding you could use a liquid sander like Paseo. it will degloss and clean the surfaces of the door. A light sanding is a good practice as it helps the primer adhere, but with the yellowish stains it might be best to use the liquid sander.

You could also try a different primer. I like a stain blocking oil base for this type of project, Kilz Oil Base or Zinsser Cover Stain will work.
