I decided to accomplish something while on vacation, I painted my recently acquired 80's era Kitchenaid mixer. It was a little rough when I got it and I wasn't fond of the almond color, so I decided to give it a paint job. I'm not usually all that crafty and have very little experience with spray paint, But I like how it came out. Here is the mixer before, you can kinda see it behind my trusty 'ol Ultra Power.
Here it is now. I'm going to do a little touch up on it tomorrow, but I'm not going to obsess over it, it's an appliance, not a decoration! I have a new trim ring and cord coming for it tomorrow. I used metallic copper spray paint and it really looks convincing.
