Thrift store frames + Vinyl = a match made in heaven

I have something on almost every wall in my house. I know, I over do it, but I just love photos too much to let the walls sit empty. This wall has been aching to be decorated since we moved into our townhouse and I finally came up with the perfect solution for my budget and for the wall.

The 8x10 frames are all thrift store frames that I brought home sanded and painted black to match. The smaller black frames came from the dollar store, some of them in two packs. Then I looked for some of the weirdest photos I could of our family. I made one collage of our little girl with all of her different faces. I then created one of my husband and I being crazy, we seem to have a lot of photos of us doing weird things together. I wonder if I bring out the weird in him or vice versa. I picked a few more normalish photos and rearranged the frames on the floor until I liked the arrangement. Then I hung it on the wall and added the words "Remember as far as anyone knows we are a Normal family."

It just seemed to fit our family. I know we are slightly unhinged, so why shouldn't everybody else. :) What vinyl decor do you have in your house?

P.S. The cute picture in the top left corner of the two little kids in the karate costume is actually my husband as a child on the left and then my child on the right, in the same outfit. Thank You Photoshop!
