Pimping Out Your KitchenAid

October 16, 2014

My mom has always loved to bake, as did her mother and grandmothers.  I remember all of my childhood there being cookies in the cookie jar, angel food cakes and pied, all done with a hand-held mixer,  I also remember how excited my mom was when she got her first KitchenAid Stand Mixer, it literally changed our lives.  


Kitchen Aid Stand Mixers are still a staple piece of equipment in kitchens of people who like to cook,  but now they are getting “gussied” up a little.  There is a trend of having hand painted decorations done to mixers and well as decals you can buy to do it yourself.  I have to say I love Pioneer Woman’s orange mixer  (as seen above) with the painted on flowers, I always smile when she gets it out.  So join me today as we look at inspiration for taking that stand mixer to the next level.

When I started researching this post I was so happy and amazed to find Nicole Dinardo, the woman behind these mixing beauties.  Here’s a look at some of her creations, you can visit her website here






Decals from Etsy


Folks are also using decals to customize their mixers, here’s some ideas from Etsy.





So, yes or no on a pimped out mixer.  Are you brave enough to maybe paint your own or have an artistic friend or relative do it.  The more I look at them the more I like them.  Let me know your thoughts and if you have or would have one.  Have a great day!!!!
