Yes it can be painted.
I’d leave the top be tough. They usually don’t rust.

I'd sand it down, wipe off the dust and coat it with a rustihibitive primer followed by a coat or two of exterior oil base enamel. Rustoleum would be ok.

Thank you. I kind of thought so but I might have just done it and would be upset if I found out it shouldn’t have been painted.
