Multi {Table-Top} Frame Collage

how to decorate with family photos

I love photography – taking pictures and printing them off to have forever! There is just something wonderful about taking the cutest pictures of your kids and freezing the moments in a tangible form – forever! I use photographs of my family to decorate all the time – sitting here on my couch I just counted seven pictures of my family that I can see. I just love filling my home with our fun memories – and freezing my kids in time for a while. Since this is such a love of mine, I though it would be fun to have a week dedicated to showing off the ways I decorate using family pictures and some of my favorite ways that I have seen others display them too!

Today I am going to show you how I have some family pictures displayed in my front room -

I sort of have a bad habit/addiction to buying picture frames – you could say that I collect them – and I used a bunch of them to create a fun little collage of family pictures on the yellow dresser (love it!) I have in my front room.

This is the biggest display of photos that I have in my home – and I love it. It has photos from my wedding, my kids, my sisters, my parents, my in-laws and each sibling with their families. I love this because my kids don’t see a few of there cousins very often but I can teach them who they are and they can learn to recognize them because we have them in our home.

There isn’t really any organization to this collage – I just found some frames (and painted some) that are the colors of that room (red, black, green, mustard), filled them with the people I love and placed them on the dresser. I put the bigger frames in the back and then just sort of put frames here and there until I was satisfied! Growing up my mom had something like this on the back of our piano and I always loved it so when my husband brought home this yellow beauty – I knew it would be perfect for this table-top display!

I love this series! Pictures are one of my FAVORITE things to decorate with (and I used to have something very similar to this display). Can't wait to see how you use them in your home!
