Replace or paint bathroom base cabinets?

I have 90" of oak builder grade cabinets in my primary bath: two 36" base cabinets with an 18" base cabinet between them. Since there's 0.5 inch trim on either side, the countertop measures 91".

The original plan was to have my painter put a fresh coat of white paint on the outdated oak, then replace the ugly laminate countertop. My contractor said it would be difficult for me to find a 91" premade countertop, so we decided to template for quartz.

But I can't wrap my brain around spending $2K on a countertop to cover builder-grade cabinets. (I must say that, although the cabinets are cheap, they are solid wood.)

What would you do?
