You could always go with some plywood/particle board etc. anchored to the CMU block with just a couple of anchors that could be filled if u move/sell, that way you can cover the wood with paint and then bamboo/lahala whatevah. Here's an idea, whatever u do on the sides of that PVC pipe going vertically in the pillar pic. u could do a faux bamboo paint job on the PVC pipe itself. PVC looks great that way. Alternately put two pieces of split boo around the pipe.
You could also put anchors in the ceiling for the top of wood pillar covers and put some anchors on the floor to hold the bottom in place, or you could build a 3 sided box for each column and then only attach to the wall or maybe leave freestanding if you weight/widen the bottom.
The basement/ backyard bar is really coming along nicely. It's fun to watch.
