Compact jr- cabinets

I think that I am about to undertake the task of "resurfacing" my cabinets. My Compact has the original, wood grain contact paper covering the cabinets. Can I paint over this? Any suggestions? I need to let you know that I am not up to rebuilding the structures.

I've seen it painted over. Mine in the Campster (same stuff) had wallpaper on it when I bought it.

One thing I noticed recently is how heavy the drawer fronts are and I was thinking of replacing just the fronts with something lighter.

If the existing covering is intact you can pre-coat it with KILZ primer sealer and paint away.

Thanks

The contact paper is starting to peel a bit...but I think I could catch it. Another post stated that they used contact paper to recover them. I am not a patient remodeler. I would love to redo the cabinets and replace the drawers with doors....then there is the dented door....the floor....hey it needs curtains!....not to mention I have the original 70's cushions!...love my Little Jubilee but it is about time to give it some TLC. Thanks for the replies. I think painting will do alot...
