Meet Val! A ReLoving Team Member
UVIC student Megan introduces another great ReLoving team member.
This week I’m introducing you all to Val.
Val is one of the lovely ladies that works here at ReLoving, and she actually got hired right out of a class!
She took the Intro Paint Shabby-Chic & Antique with Chalk-Style Paint class, and the owner, Kari, was so impressed with her work that she asked Val if she would be interested in helping out with some of the painting in the store.
Val came to ReLoving with a background in sales and management. In the winter she travels to Mexico and runs a gallery there. Maybe that’s why her taste is so impeccable!
I asked Val the standard “what is your favourite colour” question, and like nearly all of the ladies, she struggled with it, but decided that she likes whites and creams but exudes with excitement over the metallic trends.
When we talked about paint, she told me she loves how the Country Chic waxes so well – This lady loves a smooth finish! And she adores Fusion’s variety of colours. Her favourite techniques to use on painted furniture are distressing and waxing. Currently she is trying to experiment and practice more with glazes.
Val has been lucky enough to have traveled practically everywhere, so when I asked her if she could go anywhere, where would she go, she had a lot of good options. She said “I love Amsterdam, I really want to go back there.”
And her favourite thing about ReLoving? “The people we work with, getting to know the Western Communities, the creativity, everything!”
