{Kitchen Aid Mixer} Subway Art

Pin It
I love my Kitchen Aid mixer.  I use it ALL.THE.TIME.


My parents handed this one down to us (thanks mom and dad!), so it's probably at least 15 years old.  It still runs strong and just might last forever.

The vast amount of subway art I've been seeing around blogland lately has totally inspired me; then I saw the mixer vinyl over at Wonderfully Wordy.


Being a true DIY-er, I decided to create some subway art myself.  Using Photoshop, a few awesome fonts (found here), and my trusty Cricut, here is my subway art:

(part of it is upside down b/c it wraps around the top of the mixer....)



(Available for FREE download below!)




Here is my mixer BEFORE I gave it a makeover:




Here it is AFTER:



I'm in LOVE!!!


I will have a FULL tutorial soon for all of you that want to do THIS to YOUR mixer!


Get your subway art for FREE.  Am I nice or WHAT?!

  1. THAT is so clever. I have 2 Kitchen aides and I love them both and since I cater part-time it is handy to have 2 BUT one is white and wouldn't it be fun to grafitti it up. Would you consider selling one?

    Blessings!

  10. Is there any other way to cut the vinyl? I am brand new to the craft scene, and can't justify the expense of a Cricut or any other machine like it. Do regular copy shops do vinyl? I guess what I'm asking is, if I have the jpg file downloaded, where could I go to get it cut out on vinyl?
    This is the cutest thing I think I've EVER seen, by the way! :)
