Painting a sliding closet door

I have a 2-door sliding closet door that appears to be a luan, and is varnished. We are redoing the interior doors/trim/moulding in the entire house, (all painted white) and now this closet door does not look so good. I feel that I have three options:
1. lightly sand, then paint the existing doors
2. Buy new luan closet doors and paint.
3. Buy two panneled doors (to match new bedroom door) and paint.

Thoughts / comments?

if you are ok with the flat doors then lightly sand, prime then paint. If you want the raised panel doors then replace. No need to replace luan with luan.
