I’ve been a long time KitchenAid Stand Mixer owner, I LOVE it, I can’t imagine some recipes without it! If you don’t have one and you spend lots of time in the kitchen I’m sure you long for one. But what are you to do with this beauty once you have it in your arms? Customize it of course (some would say use it to cook, but this case it is beauty before belly)! Today I’ve rounded up the top 6 ways to customize your KitchenAid mixer to be the star of your kitchen. +PLUS…I’m VERY excited to share with you that I’ve partnered with some fun and awesome bloggers to GIVE one away!!
First check out these ideas:
1. Vinyl– I think this is the most common way, you can do everything from polka dots to monograms. Having a die cut machine makes this a breeze, but if you don’t, there are loads around the net to get your hands on. Check out Create,Craft, Love’s Vinyl Makeover
2. Paint– Still kickin’ it old school? If so, you probably have your hands on the power house of mixers (don’t let it go) paint is a great way to get the modern color you’re looking for. You Craft Me Up! has a great tutorial how to dismantle your Mixer and get that color you desire!
3. Bedazzle– This idea might be a bit over the top (especially the price tag of 2 Grand!) If unique is what you’re wanting, look no further than Bling Diva Designs, where you can get a custom Mixer -covered from top to bottom is Swarovski Crystals.
4. Paintable Clings- Martha Stewart and Plaid have a line of paintable clings that make remodling your mixer as easy as pie! These Clings are so easy to use (as you’ll see in Cheap Art Week tutorial), reposition-able, and are easy on the pocket-book. Definitely the simplest option, see 52 Mantels Jazzed Up Mixer.
5. Custom Ink– Un Amore Custom Designs has taken personalize to a whole new level, you can have Nicole Dinardo custom paint a mixer to suit your taste. The sky is the limit with this idea, patterns, floral, pin-ups, nature, architecture, the list goes on. This is one gallery you have to click-through!
6. Cover it– You may love your mixer but the fact is they do get dusty. A fabric cover is a great way add a little personal touch and a trendy pattern,without dragging out the paint equipment. Check out Homemade by Jill to see the details of hers.
