How can I cover pipes in an open sink in the bathroom?


I am currently renting and my bathroom sink does not have a cabinet. It is all open. I want to hide the pipes without having to add a cabinet or attach anything to the wall. I considered a curtain around it, but not sure how to attach to the porcelain sink and I wan to be able to take it off if I need to clean it. Suggestions?

    Velcro with the adhesive on the back.

    Due to the wonders of modern technology, I read your question, turned my chair around, opened the bathroom door and took this photo of my skirted sink! In this case the skirt is fastened on the back of the front of the sink, it is done with velcro and is easily removed to launder. I have done another sink that did not have a "front" so I had to fasten the velcro to the front of the sink, but I made a border to which the velcro was fastened.

      Yes, both smooth and in the case of the sink pictured; the back side of the sink is rough. This skirt is many years old as maybe you can tell from design of fabric. Frequent washing is good for all fabrics! I am a sewer but don't want to open a machine anymore so I intend to make replacement for this by hand!

    Use command adhesive hooks or strips. They have many types.

    I connected a shower curtain around my sink using double stick velcro. Buy the wide roll. You may have to affix with two lines of it. Another option would be the command hook adhesive strips.
