Walls they can be so bare and boring. This article came from a DIY site I recently joined. The idea in the photo is a real simple way to make a bare and boring wall decorative and functional. The article does suggest alternatives rather than the piping. Some were sturdy curtain rods, rods made of wood or anything that would withstand the weight of it's purpose. I like the way it is presented in the author's craft room this is an idea that would be perfect in the carriage house.
