Mantle Makeover

I have lived in this house for over 4 years and have always "wanted" to paint this mantle.  For some reason, it feels wrong to paint a piece of oak, but I finally did it!  It took me 6 minutes and cost me $2.97.  Seriously!  And I still have almost the whole sample of paint for my next project!  Valspar will mix you up a sample of any color you want for under $3!!   
BEFORE...and YES, I am going to hide those cords, "someday" !!

AFTER....and now just to figure out what wall color to paint!?!?!?

I actually put up a couple pictures too!  I was on a roll!
I even went to the Valspar Website and did the virtual painter and think I might go with a neutral green color.  Should I paint the bricks too???
