Is it metal? You can totally spray paint it, you just need the right kind of paint. They sell different paint depending on what you’re using it for. Just make sure you get one for metal. Just ask at Home Depot, they will help you since they have to unlock it anyway!

Sure you can spray paint metal.  You just have to make sure that you get a spray paint meant for metal.  I would try to paint something metal from the dollar store first just to make sure you like the look, color, and it gives you some practice on technique.

I’ve had the best luck painting metal when you use a spray paint specifically for metal, and prep the metal ahead of time.  I usually use a wire brush, or a sand paper and rough up the surface first.  You don’t want deep scratches, just a little texture to help the paint adhere.  Also follow directions on the can.  Usually you have to do thin coats multiple times to get the best effect.
