Hiding something ugly on the ceiling

Our family room has a really ugly, broken fluorescent light fixture installed flush in the ceiling. Help me figure out how to cover it up.

. It's probably about 6 inches wide and 2 feet long. Clearly, it is ugly as hell, and broken in several places. There is no bulb in it; we will not be using it. I want to cover it up with something that will cover it completely so you don't see it from underneath or the sides, but I'm not sure what that could be.
The closest I can imagine is something like this scarf trick
, but that looks juvenile and I'm hoping for something a little more sophisticated looking.
Please answer assuming the following things
: A, we are not having it removed and replaced, B, we can do anything we want to disguise/cover it up (no worries about needing something temporary/easily removed), C, our budget is unlimited. Thank you for your help.
