|They may look like an ordinary family, but the Murrays have super human renovation strength|
But eventually, the Morgan family outgrew their little space, times two, due to two adorable bundles of energy by the names of baby Kara and Ms. Hadley. No new mom enjoys walking up and down stairs all night for those late night feedings, and not all of the bedrooms were on the same floor in the townhouse, so a change had to be made.
And with that change, came a super human problem that rivals kryptonite; how can the Morgans change a boring and plain room into a big girl room for Hadley? What were Jill and John to do?
|So plain. So lifeless. It could bore Jill and John's children to death and the Super Murrays couldn't stand for that!|
Luckily, Jill comes from a family with super human strength and super human skills.
|They take their work very seriously.|
|Okay, so this obviously wasn't taken in February in Chicago during the renovation, but I think it is a cute picture.|
|Another out of date picture, but look how cute Kyle looks.|

Project #1 for the Super Hero Family: Tackling the Lamp
This fantastic lamp was found online and the Murrays knew it would add charm and texture to Ms. Hadley's new big girl room. The problem was the lamp was pink, and not purple, and more money than they wanted to pay. "What problem," says the Super Murrays, "We will figure out how to do it ourselves!"
|Inspiration lamp online from Pottery Barn Kids|
|Find some lace with rosettes on it.|
|Cut the rosettes apart and glue them onto the lamp shade... and voila!|
|Super Murrays to the lamp shade rescue!|
Adorable hanging art that was found on Pinterest, but not the right color or theme for the room. What was Creative Paper Genius Lady Aunt Nancy to do?
|Pinterest find and idea inspiration.|
|Play fetch with the Super Pooch leads to a score! I perfect branch for the artwork. Nice job Super Pooch!|
|Cut out birds and butterflies from craft paper and attach pins to the back|
|Lay out ribbon on a straight board and pin the birds and the bees, I mean the birds and the butterflies, accordingly. (Ha ha, not really that funny....)|
|Here is the fun and whimsical final product!|
The decor by the bookshelf was a litle blah and not fun.

Paint a few walls, install a light fixture from IKEA, hunt for that just right piece of furniture and put it all together and you get one perfect little Ms. Hadley bedroom. Thanks to the work of the Super Murrays!
My only question is: So, when are you going to visit me Murray family?
Love, your adoring neice, Steph.
