comment Enamel Canned Spray Paint on interior trim?
Also, spray paint always results in some overspray and a mist of airborne paint that can stick to surrounding areas. Be sure to either spray outdoors or mask areas around the spraying very well and wide.

comment How to fix my ceiling lights?
I appreciate the dichotomy of our role - guide as best we can, but don't enable risky/bad behavior. For the present OP, I would err on the side of put the screwdriver down! But I realize that they may not listen, and some guidance may be better than random poking on their part. It's a tough call.

comment How to fix my ceiling lights?
While all good suggestions, does the form of the question lead you to beleive that the OP is up to these tasks? You make clear allusions (to the initiated) about the risks and complexities, but the detailed suggestions may send a reckless novice on a fool's errand.

comment How can I reduce the humidity level in my basement?
+1 There are also pumping dehumidifiers that do not accumulate water at all but pump through a drain tube to a nearby drain or to the outside (through a small hole in the wall).

No. The wire could be compromised in the run to any of the cans, or even in a line heading toward the switch.
