What Color Should I Paint…My Mixer?

I’ve having enough trouble choosing colors for my walls that I hadn’t even stopped to think about what color to paint my stand mixer. Actually, I hadn’t even considered painting it, until I saw these droolworthy Kitchen Aid mixers  from Un Amore by Nicole Dinardo, as pointed out by Ree, The Pioneer Woman.

They are stunning.

I think they fall into the category, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.” But I see Nicole also sells decals, so the masses can DIY their way to a mixer than makes a statement for under $25.00. Go ahead, pimp your mixer!

I’d totally get those flames if they matches the paint in the kitchen. But actually, I’d need to get a stand mixer, too.

I sold ours a couple of years ago. I’m all about the strong arm and the wooden spoon. Unless I’m whipping up meringue or something, I do it by hand. Or, as I like to say almost all my cookies come with hand jobs.

Actually, that’s the first time I ever said that.

How about you? I mean, do you have a stand mixer? More importantly, how often do you use it? Should I get a new one?

    I have a mixer. I love my mixer. I love it so much we had it repaired a few years ago when the motor was making funky sounds. Got it as a wedding gift 15 years ago and it’s still going strong. Get a mixer. 🙂

    I have an awesome read one that I got from Kenmore. It sits on the counter and looks beautiful. Has it been used yet? Um… no! But I am working on that.

    I have a blue professional Kitchen Aid. Fought the urge for many years. But other than my Blendtec it is the only appliance that stays out on my counter. I didn’t think I’d use it all that much but I use it at least once a week.
