There is true beauty in long-lasting friendships. Many great things come from them: laughs, memories, inside-jokes and even furniture! Yes, furniture! Elementary school best friends Keri and Breann have used their friendship and common passion for old furniture to start a small business that brings beauty back into pieces people have given up on. So if you’re interested in bringing the old back to life or adding personal touches to furniture around your home, Upcycled Girls is the place for you to visit!
Reduce, reuse and recycle the furniture that was once in-style and make it your own!
What products and/or services do you offer? How long have you been in business?
We offer refurbished furniture pieces either ones we have found, fixed up and sold – or ones customers want to make presentable again! We also offer custom vinyl designs … such as personalized tumblers, cups, signs, shirts, etc. We have been in business for about 4 years now.

Why did you start your business? What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew?
Me and Breann have been friends since the 4th grade! We started this business because we both went through some huge life changing events, and we needed something that we could do that gave us an identity outside of being mothers, wives, and caretakers. We both had a huge love for old and or ugly pieces of furniture that others would turn away from. But we wanted to get them back to the potential we could see they had! This also led into creating one of a kind custom vinyl designs that someone could add their personal touches and ideas and bring them to life! Just how much time, energy, and passion we put into each project. I (Keri) look at furniture like they’re human, as crazy as that sounds ??. They tell me stories, I listen, and I try to make that piece as beautiful as it has ever been!
