It seems Spaces accepts custom subdomains (e.g. sub.example.com).
But what if I want to host my entire static website on Spaces? Can I throw all my HTML/CSS files there and map my domain to the CDN?
So instead of sub.example.com I would be able to access my website at: example.com.
Is it possible?

Because there are so many secondary features that to really provide a great platform for static sites such as deployment and SSL we launched an app platform which has full support for static sites. You can find out more here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
At this time we don’t offer static site hosting directly in-Cloud; you could set-up a small Droplet (with a reverse proxy, using Nginx or other software) to act as a middleman in this setup and get things working.
We are looking to introduce static sites later this year.
