Yes, sure they can be painted. You must first prepare the surface properly.  Sand lightly and then wipe off with a damp cloth.  Then apply a good primer. Bulls Eye water based LOW ODOR PRIMER is great cause it eliminates a lot of sanding.  Then paint with any water based wall paint. For more durability, use a top coat of water based polyurethane.  Make sure to read instructions.  Faux Painting can be a great alternative to a solid paint color.  I did a counter top and it looks fabulous.  Here's a close up picture.  It's just simple sponging.
Here's a website that shows you how to faux paint a marble finish, too.  The good part is that you can always just paint over.
