Is it possible to take out the window and intall some in-wall storage?

Or something like this that can be used to display flowers or artwork?

BakerBee16:  If you plan to remove it eventually, I’d probably just hang some artwork over it and call it a day! You can probably remove the frame pretty easily so that whatever you hang will sit flush on the wall.

OR THIS! I want to build one of these badly, but we already have a bar cart, so we don’t really need it: http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/05/build-this-vintage-sign-inspired-liquor-cabinet.html

I would hang a giant mirror over it!

Where does the window lookout onto? What if you left it as an opening into the next room?

If you are planning on ultimately drywalling over i for now I would personally do something like this:<br /><br />https://www.etsy.com/listing/62591260/vintage-ornate-gold-frame-chalkboard<br /><br />If you can find a table low enough I would put a table underneath and put things on it like this:<br /><br />http://seakettle.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/DSC_1381-680×1024.jpg<br /><br />I would buy some really ornate trim, swap it out for the plain stuff there now and paint it whatever colour you’d like. <br /><br />It’s an idea!

BakerBee16:  Quick fix? Paint it white and either do a series of framed couple photos in it or one decent sized picture in the middle.

BakerBee16:  Since it is the office, what if you just used some chalkboard paint and left the frame white? Then you could use it as a checklist, to-do list, or anything you’d like!

I would use some chalkboard paint and turn it into a nice chalkboard. That way if you don’t end up staying the landlord can’t charge you for majorly altering the wall.
