Sounds like they might be plastic laminate and if so, you probably won't be able to paint them very effectively. You might be able to get them resurfaced.

Try a primer called Stix - it's made to bond to plastic or other slick surfaces. You can get it in either brush-on or spray. It's available at most DIY stores. Make sure that the surface is VERY clean before priming (TSP or other paint prep cleaners work well) and give it a light sand with a 240 grit sandpaper. I generally like 2 coats of primer with a light sanding in between and then leave the primer to cure a week before top coating with a water based melamine paint applied with a foam roller.
Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Longpré originally painted the horizontal wall planks in a flat white but found that over time the color began to yellow. He eventually repainted every inch of the interior by hand in a high-gloss white paint — a choice he does not regret one bit. “The interior is so much brighter now,” Longpré says. “The sunlight bounces off the walls and makes the home feel so much more lively.”Paint: Corrostop

The article indicates the owner repainted the interior high gloss white to prevent the discoloration issues from the previous flat white. They claim it really brightens up the place, and I believe its makes clean ups easier as well. The drawers in the kitchen island seem more practical than cabinets and shelves.
