While you can sand and paint particleboard cabinetry,  I can't guarantee a wonderful or durable finish. This fix can make them a good deal more presentable.  Sand the cabinets first and get them as smooth as you can.  Then I would recommend an oil based primer.  Latex primers will raise the particles in the board creating a rougher look.  You way have to sand again with fine sandpaper and apply a second coat of oil based primer.  The topcoat with two coats of 100% acrylic paint.  Try to find a finish that will "level out" and give you a nice finish look.  I have had good luck with ProClassic from Sherwin Williams and Cover Stain primer from Zinnser.
