Need ideas to enclose heater pipes

I am looking for ideas to cover ugly pipes that go up the wall above my heater. The pipes get very hot and I cannot use a window curtain when the heater is in use.

Welcome to the forums! Was this heater installed by a professional? I ask, because I question the size of the vent pipe and its close proximity to a combustible surface, both of which are not in your benefit. You will not be able to enclose these pipes due to heat build up in the cavity formed by the enclosure. And definitely remove the curtain permanently until a triple wall vent pipe is installed that will allow a closer proximity. You appear to have a fire that hasn't happened yet.

Heater Pipes

Hi, Yes this heater was professionally installed. It is a VENTED MONITOR KEROSENE HEATER. This is "approved central heat" accepted by our homeowners insurance. The unit itself does not get hot, only the pipes. They are such an eyesore I wish there was some way to hide them.
