Yeah, that's the best way. At the very least use sandpapaer to scuff the bars up so the new paint will grip better. Then paint them black, then wait for them to dry, then paint again, the dry, then clear coat - twice - then wait about 5 days before you use them so the paint has time to harden.

It won't be close to powdercoat quality, but it is a lot less money.

I'm not sure if you should tape up and NOT paint where your stem clamps on though - I would probably tape that.
