Since opening in '97, Nelsen Painting and Restoration has transformed a lot of spaces. The company single-handedly rehabbed an old high school into a museum for famed folk musician Doc Watson, for instance. While the company's specialty is in interior and exterior painting, the service menu extends much further. Each Nelsen contractor is highly trained to refinish floors, restore tiles, and even install drywall and house siding. While awaiting a newly stained deck to dry, clients can also solicit a technician for a high power pressure washing of a house, or driveway, or dirty pressure washer.
At Let's Paint Wichita, owner Melodee Schaefer and instructor Cassie Bouchereau break down the barriers between beginners and painting fetching masterpieces. In relaxed classes, guests armed with brushes, canvases, and aprons build paintings such as van Gogh’s Starry Night with the help of step-by-step instruction. The studio hosts everything from drop-in classes, complete with wine and beer for purchase, to private parties for kids. Students leave the studio with their own works of art and a wealth of new painting techniques.
