Spruce up with paint

Nine months ago, Chris Dotson went out on his own after working for about 4 1/2 years as a supervisor for Spiegel and Sons Painting in Steamboat Springs.

Dotson's business is Performance Painting and Custom Finishing. The majority of his work has been residential - exterior and interior paint jobs and custom finishing wood furniture, doors and/or windows. Commercial painting also is a service he offers.
