Electrical wiring/outlets are on outsides of walls, want to hide them
 
3 Attachment(s)

Hey guys, I recently purchased a 100 year old house, my first home.

Anyway, the wiring and outlets on certain walls are on the outside of the wall instead of inside it. This is mainly on the exterior walls where there is brick and then plaster over, with no space between the brick and plaster for wiring to go.

As a newbie, I wanted to learn about the different options for hiding the wiring and outlets. I'd like this to a DIY job if possible and not too complicated.

I've attached a few pics as examples. Thanks!
