I have seen steel cable used as cool magnetic bulletin boards
before, which got me thinking.... If I were to run horizontal steel cable at a consitent heigth around all 4 walls of my home office, what could I do with it?

The original inspiration came from the cool old moveable ladder systems that you used to see in old fashioned hardware stores and book stores. (My ceilings are not tall enough to have any reason to support human weight.)
My ideas so far:
1. affix white showerboard to plywood, and hang with hooks for a sliding/moveable dry erase board.
2. obviously the hanging of pictures and other decorative stuff.
3. Perhaps suspend shelving from the cable? How?
Any other creative ideas? Any reasons why this is a stupid idea? I am also open ideas that would require more than strand of cable or a variety of other materials.
