10 Things You Didn't Know About Us

Like the famous lyrics sung by Julie Andrews in the King and I: "Getting to know you, getting to know all about you..." we wanted to take a pause and share a little bit more about the 'birds' behind Phoenix Phurnishings, LLC.


First, neither of our names are Phoenix, we're Amanda and Michael (or Muscles). The name of the business comes from Greek Mythology about the bird that rises from the ashes, known as the Phoenix. Amanda started the business in 2017 doing furniture refinishing but now we're a full online boutique. It's been a fun journey watching the business evolve.


So, without any further delay, let's jump in to our top 10 list!


The first thing you didn't know about us...


We met online and after the first date, Amanda asked her Private Investigator friend to run a full background check on Michael because she liked him and wanted to see if there was anything she should know about. (Ha!) Well, her PI friend came back with a few pieces of paper and said, "well... he's BORING, he doesn't have anything on his record"! Six months later, this photo happened. (We were just babes!)



Here's the second thing you didn't know about us. We went through an intensive Dave Ramsey experience (personal finance program) to get to a point where we could launch the business. Then we kept with the program so Amanda could leave her day job and run the business full time. It's been a rewarding experience and if you've ever been curious about the Dave Ramsey program, we can't recommend it enough!
