You can probably just paint then if it's smooth and not peeling. You can use spray paint also.
Organize, Organize, Organize! If the cabinet is yet too small after moving less essentials to a Cardboard Box with an index card of dates and times of those, you need more cabinets. You can always expand up with a ladder.
