If you have a lot of patience and are a meticulous painter, yes, they can be done. I just painted some bathroom cabinets like yours. You really need to take the time to prep them if you are going to do it. But if you do, you can get a nice look.

Or you can pay a professional. :)

Is there a book or such on the prepping and painting?

Before you paint, add a crown molding and a narrow strip of trim at the bottoms to dress them up a bit. Once you paint, they will look a bit more custom/less builder basic. And add hardware afterwards, use a template to make sure all the knob and pulls are placed the same.
It will look wonderful!

I painted ours with Reclaim and I love them. They are cream, not white.

Benjamin Moore White Dove is a great cabinet paint color, esp with your dark floors. I agree that mouldings above, especially, will make them feel more custom. Good luck!
