Can I Refinish Vintage Doll Crib with Spray Paint?

Can I Refinish Vintage Doll Crib with Spray Paint?

Q: I found this vintage metal baby doll crib at an estate sale and knew my girls had to have it. (Sofia, pictured, is 3 and Lola is 2). There is a fair amount of corrosion so I definitely want to paint it but not sure what my options are. I've read a bit about powder paint and that auto body shops can do it, but I don't even know...

...where to begin (I live in New Jersey). Could I just spray paint it? There are 6 original decals in great shape that I would like to save so I'm assuming I can just cover those with masking tape before spray paint but if I go the powder paint route not sure if that is possible. Thanks for your help!
