    If you paint a lamp shade then it will become less translucent. That’s ok if the lamp is only accent lighting.

    I have painted a metal floor lamp. Just cover what you do not want painted with tape, and use spray paint.

    Absolutely, have done it many times. Tape off switch, use spray primer and spray paint for a smoother finish. A couple of coats should do. I’ll usually use a dark primer for a dark color, white primer for a lighter color.

    YES. Metal paint for metal lamps and any spray paint for ceramic. I've painted many but be sure to tape off the electrical portion well.
