Meet Lisa Anthony Dennis
From The Superior Paint Co. Family!
Tell us about yourself:
Born and raised in Burnaby, then spent most of my adult life in Kelowna BC. Spent 28 years working as a health care professional, and decided that I wanted to do something creative and rewarding in my semi-retirement. My husband and I sold our home in Kelowna, and bought a small farm in Grand Forks, complete with an old farm house.
We have spent the last 2 months completely renovating the house. Much of the furniture that we have in our home is work that I have refinished with the farmhouse theme in mind.
We have 3 dogs, and they love living on the farm and making friends with the neighbors livestock! We hope to add some farm animals of our own next year.
What is your position with The Superior Paint Co. Family?
I am the owner of The Refinish Line in Grand Forks BC. I do all of the refinishing, retailing, and scouting for new furniture pieces. My husband Glen is my go-to guy for pick ups and delivery, and for muscle for moving the big pieces for me. We can be contacted at 250-442-0929. We have set up our workshop and retail space inside of our barn/workshop on our property, so it is nice to not need to travel to work any more! We are currently open by appointment only, but will be adding dedicated store hours later this month. You can find us on Facebook at The Refinish Line.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
Teaching workshops, painting furniture for yourself/clients/to sell, meeting new customers and inspiring them to renew and reuse ect.
I love creating something unique and beautiful out of unloved and unwanted furniture…..the uglier the better! I also love the concept of renewing and recycling furniture rather than buying new. It is more economical, practical, and having a piece that no one else has is nice too! You can really personalize your space with original, one of a kind pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.
What are you passionate about?
I’m a firm believer in shopping locally and promoting the local economy.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I enjoy spending time training my dogs, reading and cooking.
What do you like to do for fun?
Paint furniture! I find it fun and relaxing.
What’s something we don’t know about you?
I’m a closet poetess.
What's your favorite Superior Paint Co. Colour or product?
I love Burlap because it is the perfect neutral that works with any colour.
I am also partial to Sapphire skies because it is very vibrant and also because I named it!
What is your HOT TIP for new Superior Paint Co. customers?
Use good products! Your furniture will only ever be as good as the materials you use on them. Quality products make a huge difference in the finished product. Also, spend a little money and invest in a good brush for yourself. You can’t get a nice finish working with a bargain paint brush of poor quality.
