My Kitchenaid Mixer Makeover

I know I’m a little late to the party on this project, but I just got my Silhouette and this is my first project.



Before:  white classic Kitchenaid mixer.  I received this as a gift from my step mom at my wedding shower and it has been a work horse in my kitchen.  Over the last 17 years it has churned out dozens and dozens of cookies, gallons of whipped cream and even a bit of bread dough.



After:  same classic mixer just spiffed up a bit.

  6. I love it. I named my orange kitchen aid, Cheeto(because he looks like one) and labeled him with vinyl. It was so fun, simple and I love it!!
    great job! Here is my Cheeto

  10. So cute! I have an old kitchenaid that my grandmother gave me--it certainly isn't as good looking as the new ones they have these days--this is such a great idea, I can't wait to try it on mine!

  12. For a mixer you keep on the counter and use a lot, I think that's a great way to bring new life to it. We have one of those mixers too, but currently it's under the sink. Probably a sign we need to bake more often!

  47. The ultimate crafter's tool and the ultimate baker's tool come together for one spectacular creation! What a great way to use your Silhouette and add a personal and creative touch to your mixer!

    It was so wonderful having you participate in "A Little Birdie Told Me..." at Rook No. 17! I hope you'll swing by again tomorrow to share more of your creativity and talent!!

    Warmest wishes,
    Jenn
