The varnish on the wood can dull the blades so be prepared to buy new ones after the job is done. Also, be sure to have an outfeed table or a roller system to hold the weight of the wood. An infeed system would be a good idea too.
Strip and finish off the boards before planning. Not only will it dull the blades, it'll probably **** up the planer. The dust from the finishes is also deadly. Reclaiming lumber takes a lot of work but definitely worth it.
