Can this surface be painted over?

Can anyone please let me know if this wood used for office desk can just be painted over or does it need to be sanded and does a certain paint need to be used?

Can you take a picture of the whole thing back a bit further?

The desk tops must be varnished or something as they have gone white in areas water has got to it and bubbled slightly. The shelves have a smooth feel to them but are not as glossy as the tops

take a look at the rustoleum products at home depot. they have paint for both counters and cabinets that might work well on this surface.
