Have a big red anglepoise lamp which I want to be silver! As its metal the lamp gets hot so i wonder if spray painting it would be a dangerous plan?

Could you look at paints used for things like fireplaces so they're heat resistant.

Oh good idea, I'll have a look.

Radiator paint/hammerite should do the trick.

I wouldn't recommend it when it will probably look bad and you can find silver anglepoise lamps for cheap. You can find them here:

The cost of the paint and the work needed compared the price of a new silver lamp makes it worth it to purchase a new one in my opinion

Yeah that's probably true. I was looking forward to doing it myself though, I love doing stuff like that. It's a fab tall floor lamp not a desktop one smile For what reason will it probably look bad (so I can avoid that!)?
