My Repurposed Life website provides inspiration and tutorials for repurposing furniture and other household items. It is run by Gail Wilson, passionate about repurposing and upcycling. The website features a variety of projects, such as dressers, desks, headboards, nightstands, shelves, coatracks, doors, and drawers that have been repurposed into new and functional home decor.
Whether you think you can or can't, you're right. No one believes this as wholeheartedly as Gail Wilson, a former teacher, and Kentucky native, obsessed with finding potential in the most unexpected places. Her first love is repurposed furniture.
As a young mother, Gail was always making bean bag tosses and puppet playhouses long before DIY became a household word. And as it does, life moved quickly—she got busy as a preschool teacher and mother, and the tools took a back seat. But in 2009, after losing her job, Gail realized it was time to return to what she loved again. She began repurposing salvaged material, but at the same time, those projects were bringing new purpose to her life.
Her obsession with the cordless drill, pocket hole Kreg jig, and table saw started with long sessions watching YouTube videos on how (and how not) to use tools. Since then, she's completed countless inventive projects. From transforming a pillar candle and pot lid into the cutest bird bath in the history of birdbaths to remodeling her daughter's desk into a custom kitchen island, Gail always looks for castaways to bring back to life. (These days, the kitchen island isn't full of cooking utensils, but sandpaper, paint stirrers, and paint brushes!)
