Need help planning fireplace makeover!

This is what I was thinking for this wall. Please let me know your opinion or suggestions!

I want the TV either above the fireplace or on the wall where the bookshelves are. (My kitchen is directly across from the bookshelves).

I wanted to replace and lower the mantel, and paint the brick white to make it clean and more modern. The fireplace is gas so the log storage is no longer needed, however, I figured it would cost too much to get rid of it altogether. I'm not a fan of the bookshelves because they are old and are not the best quality. I was thinking about floating shelves on either side? Or we could do new built-ins with cabinets on the lower half.

Lastly, I don't want to spend a ton of $$$. I want to tastefully upgrade at a decent cost.

Thanks in advance!
