Part of the kitchen cabinets
In our small double wide home, I have cabinets that are tannish color. they are over 20 yrs old. They still are in good condition, except for the bottom ones under the sink. Some water spills have really made a mess of them. I don't want the expense of changing all the cabinets. There are lots of them, including the dining area ''credenza". I'd like to paint them including the frosted glass, so people cannot see the items inside the cabinets.

Yes Kathleen! It is possible to paint your kitchen cabinets and your credenza. You could paint over the glass but I would not. The paint can scratch off easily and then you would have unsightly glass. Rather than painting over the glass consider using some decorative paper to hide what's behind the glass doors or mount some thin rods top and bottom inside the cabinet doors and shur/gather some fabric panels on the door. You could use Contac paper cut to fit the rectangles in the glass and mount it on the outside or if it's flat on the inside you could mount some paper using spray adhesive on the inside.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets!
Hi Kathleen here's a video on how to paint the cabinets, I would put a mactac or or decal on the glass rather that trying to paint it, you could also try a glass frosting which you can apply peel and stick, or a glass frosting that sprays on.
I painted my cabinets and also painted the plexiglass that I have on 2 of the doors with absolutely no problem. However as GK said, the paint might scratch off if it's on glass. Before making a decision, I'd look around to see if there is a specialty paint that is designed to work on glass. One hack that comes to mind might be to mix paint and "Elmer's" glue like they do for faux stained glass. You would have to make it opaque but it might work. No guarantee - but you might try it on an extra piece of glass from an old frame to see how it works out. Wishing you the best.
I didn't like my 1970's oak cabinet door fronts, they had insects with scalloped corners...I cut beadboard to cover the area I didn't like and glued it in place , then painted them !
Paint the back side of the glass inside the cabinet doors. This will let you clean the glass on the outside, but block the view inside.
