Painting lamppost


As you can tell I'm not the best at painting much so I need help with my lamppost next.

It's faded so I would like to paint it a nice black color.

Do I wipe it down with mineral spirits and then apply primer? Or should I just use a rag to dust it
off and spray paint it black?

Can I use the spray can on my picture?

Just clean it (skip the spirits) and spray with what you have there.

Is a spray can better than a paint brush? Is it better to just tape up or remove the top part?
