I scored this wall art wt kohls for $10. Originally it was $40 but it was half price and then i had a coupon for $10 off of anything. I went through the womens section and the toddler section. There was nothing we could use so I decided to get something I actually wanted for once! Well its hung between the front door and the bay window. Oddly, it feels incomplet to me. I feel like it is too small for the space. Considering hanging two 8x10 picture frames next to it on each side. Like one on one side and one on th other.what do you guys think? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I agree that it seems too small for the space.  Not sure how to fix it though....

I think some smaller photos of the family around it would be cute.

I think it's a bit small, but a good focal point for a collage on that wall. I would drop it a tiny bit and buy and assortment of frames all the same color and the color of that piece. From the pic it looks black, so I'll say all black frames in various sizes and have fun with it. Arrange them around that piece, some 4x6's, 5x7's and 8x10's, let all the frames make a wonderful collage and it will take up space.

Can you do smaller picture frames going around it? Like photos Of the kids hugging, being sweet, abiding by "the rules" listed. That is a great dea, or even just wall sconces on either side will work just fine!

If 2 8x10 frames is what you have to work with and you don't want to go buy more, I'd move the rules plaque over to one side and put the two frames, one above the other next to it so the whole thing is basically a square shape to give it a nice modern look.

 Some 4x6 family fotos would be perfect.

I would do like the other ladies say small family pictures acting out the rules or  doing a college with other sayings on the wall .
