Chandalier has 5 white glass mini-lampshades. It would cost too much to replace them with colored shades…?

Could I paint the glass lampshades (I’m not sure they’re called glass lampshades, but this is the best way I know to describe them), to add the needed color? They are the same type of shades you see covering the lightbulbs on the 4-way lights on ceiling fans. Thank you!
