Kitchen Aid Mixer Got A Makeover

So I had wanted a kitchen aid mixer for a very long time but didn’t know how much I would actually use it but after using it makes my life so much easy dump everything in and mix.

My husband didn’t want to put out the money to get one for the reason above he wasn’t sure how much I would use it and everyone we talked to theirs just sits in the kitchen and takes up space and never gets used.

I kept asking around and finally someone said I have one u can have no charge so I was so excited it wasn’t the exact model I wanted but could I be picky. Nope I couldn’t but it was a basic white color so after being on pinterest one day I came across a few pics of the mixer with designs.

All pictures are from pinterest.

These pictures inspired me to take a look at those blogs to see how they decorated their mixers, after reading a few said they created on scal software which I do not have but I do have the subway art cartridge and a cricut machine.

So I picked which color vinyl I wanted to use and started cutting out the subway art for baking and then it was time to pick what words I wanted to use. After that I went downstairs and put the vinyl in my mixer below is my before and after pictures of my mixer.

If I decide I don’t like it any longer I just peel it off and leave plain or put a different design back on. It was so easy hope this inspires u to decorate your mixer.

    I HEART my Kitchen Aid mixer, and love what you did to yours! So cute! I have a red one to match my kitchen, but your pictures have made me wonder if I might want to get motivated to spruce it up a little!

    That is super cute. And I love that you can switch it up if you feel like it. I love that kind of flexibility. Nice!!

    Love it–very clever! I had a Kitchen Aid that I used all the time, but switched to a Bosch (bigger capacity–but industrial looking 😦 ick.) Now that our 5 kids are growing up and leaving, wish I had it back again. Maybe one of my friends will give me one! 🙂 Question–how do the decals hold up with cleaning?

    I LOVE THIS!!! I had written myself a note a while ago to check out the cricut machine for my business – that way i could cut my own small stencils that I want, right? I am so interested in cutting lettings, or words, sayings, but i dont get how it all works- ie) what tools i need … you speak of the subway art cartridge – whats that? is it part of the cricut thing? i wouldnt be cutting vinyl, rather the clear stencil stuff… thanks so much, love your glasses too!

    Great idea and congratulations on your new mixer! My KitchenAid mixer is about 40 years old, and a bit shabby looking. I am not sure decorating it would help since it is that sort of sickly gold from the 1970s and the letters are a bit worn off. Still, it works, and I love it. Enjoy yours!

    I love this idea, I use my mixer about 5 times a week so it never sits taking up space on my counter.

    Great way to freshen up your kitchen’s most prominent countertop appliance! Cheaper then buying a new one, and if you use vinyl, you can change it whenever the mood hits you. I love to change my dishes and kitchen decor with the seasons, and this would be so nice to change and make it more festive! Hey, let’s face it…it’s a wonderful appliance, but it’s huge and that bright red or yellow that may have seemed awesome a few years ago, might benefit from a bit of upgrading 🙂

    I love this idea, I am actually on my second kitchen aid – sold the first one cause I wanted a more powerful one and wanted a change in color – lol should have read this post first….I now have the gorgeous orange Kitchen Aid but am redoing my kitchen soon, so I guess my Kitchen Aid will be getting a redo as well…
