Love The Lines, But How To Change the Color?

Good Questions

Q: I'm not crazy about blonde veneers, but I love the silhouette of this piece and the hardware. I've looked a bit into painting it, but the drawers fit so tightly against one another, I'm afraid maybe layers of paint will make it impossible to open and close them. Should I just try painting the façade and hope for the best? As you can see, in some places the veneer is chipped and the finish is worn. I hope I can get some suggestions from you clever DIY readers. I'm up for just about any solutions that wouldn't look too busy.
