I did some research on "steam pipes" and you're right - they are hard to keep paint on them.

 

 Being from the south though...I am not sure if these pipes are functional in heating the room or are a way to deliver steam to upper rooms.  So I am going with the first one.

 

Try using decorative sheet metal panels to "box" around the pipes. Or, attach two nails or screws on opposite sides of the pipe and gently bend the sheet so that they sit up against them.  This will make a curved guard around the pipe.
