Is there a SAFE way to convert an inside lamp into an outside lamp?

I have two metal indoor lamps with glass shades that I would like to use outside.

I am wondering if I install weatherproof light sockets and ground the metal and install a 3 prong grounded cord and cap and use it on a GFI, is that safe?

I prefer not to burn the house down and not electrocute anyone.

Thanks,
Goodenough

I wouldn't take the chance. Lights can be bought at a reasonable price.
