I love, love, love my KitchenAid mixer. It was a super generous, wedding shower gift from my grandmother (who is now no longer living.) I actually didn't use it for the first 3 years I had it because I stored in the bottom of our pantry cupboard and it was too hard to get it out every time I needed it.
Slapping myself repeatedly on the forehead for that one!
I don't know what I was thinking!
I finally dug it out and put it in its rightful spot on the kitchen counter. Now we're best buds. I even named it, following my sisters-in-law's lead. It's a white mixer so now it's me, Betty (Crocker, that is), and Snow White, the KitchenAid Princess. :)
But every princess needs a little fancying up, don't you think?
I wasn't brave enough to pull it apart and spray paint it so I thought maybe some vinyl would do the trick. I got some blue vinyl at Hobby Lobby with a coupon and cut out a little birdy and some flourishes with my Cricut. I found a couple of tutorials online to help me along with process: A Little of This blog and Donna's Dayz blog. (Thanks gals!)
When it was dry, I used the transfer tape to adhere the vinyl to my mixer.
