What To Do With Wall Cubby?

Good Questions

Q: We've been living in our new home for a year and a half, and one element has me totally stuck. This cubby is in a prominent place in our living room/dining room area. It used to open into the garage, I suppose, and has since been boarded up. The previous residents propped a mirror in the space, but this doesn't make it any more attractive. I thought I could display some kind of collection there, but the bottom "sill" is a rough, uneven surface - and we don't collect anything! Also, it's all the way on the right side of a very long wall, so art to cover it would have to be a very, very long piece, or three larger pieces (the "window" being hidden behind the one on the right). Any suggestions?

Thank you so much for considering my question! I've attached pictures. The cat in the second picture is named Calvin - he's a ham.
