hi husband and i recently purchased an 82 year old home and the hot water pipes are an eyesore in our living room. We would like to cover them n some way other than painting them, but we have no idea how to. Can someone help?

One possible way is to get some of those plastic covers they make for shower curtain rods. They come in many colors and can easily be cut to length.
Another option might be to wrap the pipes with a nice looking cloth that matches something else in the room.

Another option would be to 'Box' them in with framework and drywall, painting to match the current wall color.
