Building over my mantlepiece/ replacing fireplace doors

We are doing some cosmetic work in our livingroom and I want to do a quick refurb of my wood burning fireplace..Does anyone recommend someone who can remove our 1960ish brass fireplace doors and install something more contemporary? (We never use it so I'm not going to install gas.) Also, our mantle is small and ugly but has an electrical outlet in it we don't want to mess with because out tv is plugged into it and sits on the mantle. We would love to attach something around all sides of the mantlepiece, some kind of interesting reclaimed wood or something that would allow us to make it more attractive without demolishing it. We plan a bigger reno in a few years so really are just looking to improve a current eyesore that might all get torn out later. Any thoughts would be so appreciated!
