Home Project: Goodbye Brass Fireplace Surround!

We hated the ugly brass fireplace surround!!!!  So after some online research, I discovered an easy, inexpensive fix (as opposed to purchasing a new surround with doors that would cost about $300-$400!)

BEFORE (ugly brass!)

AFTER one coat of black Rust-oleum high-heat paint 
($13, Home Depot) I used a sponge brush to paint it on, taping off the brick with paper tape and painter's tape.
