You can try a product called "Goof Off" which removes old paint--however, it might take off the older finish too. It's available at most hardware stores. Try a little on a non-visible place and see if the finish is removed with the paint. If the paint she used was oil-based, this product won't work--you'll need lacquer thinner or paint remover--and that will most certainly damage the old finish. You could buy new handles--in a finish you like--or get creative and buy something that would look nice with your finished dresser.
