Her name or one of those big monograms from etsy. I really like the vinyl sayings too.

How about a great poster in a nice frame (buy an ugly painting at salvation and save and paint the frame white or spray paint gold)

A nice “paris” poster would work well.

I’d do something a little different and something like these.

I love burris4’s suggestions! You could also hang wooden letters from ribbon with her initials.

Oh please don’t put anything vinyl in that room! An old window or mirror in a frame antiqued white or painted/antiqued soft pink would be so cute. Even something a really soft green antiqued would be cute to match the green in the quilt and curtains. I would also paint that little stand the same color as whatever painted over the bed. Or some pictures frames painted.

I think an old pane window would look nice.

How about an old vintage ceiling tile. You can get them on E-Bay. Paint it either pink or pale green and then white  over the top and  sand it off in areas so that the under paint shows through. 

Framed old sheet music can be tea died and framed in painted white ornate fames. It would be fun to find children songs. Possibly the wizard of OZ or Mary Poppins or Shirly Temple songs.

Another idea would be take an old window pane with the paint coming off (make sure it is not lead however) and under the glass hang combinations of dried flowers tied with dainty ribbons and  then add antique post cards.

For the bedside table stack old suit cases of similar sizes. These can be nailed together to make the piece more stable.  You could leave the top one workable so she could use it for storage of books and stuff.

  I  would even have a lace doiley or embrodered linens  hanging out of some of the cases to make them look functional.  You can get vintage travel stickers from the craft store from places like Paris, Milan etc. to carry off the theme.

Pillows – go to thrift shops and antique stores and get old table linens, doileys and tack them to the front of store bought pillows with dainty floral prints or if you sew make the pillows out of these anitque pieces.

You did a great job on the room.  Send more pictures when you get it done.

An empty window frame would be OK, but not with glass in it, especially over the bed of a child…they jump on them and it could fall off the wall and cause some serious injuries.

Looks like you’ve gotten some great ideas!
