I recently discovered just how easy it was to repaint my kitchen aid stand mixer. It only cost me 15.00 in spray paint.



The tools: Screw drivers both Philips and flat head
               Spray paint - satin lagoon from rust-oleum  and crystal clear enamel also from rust-oleum



I took the top part from the base, removed the back that covers the motor and all metal that was held on by a screw. Then I taped the pieces that I didn't want painted and propped that bad boy up.




When everything was done drying * i gave it about 5 hours* I put everything back together and made sure my mixer still turned on lol



I cant seem to get a good photo of the finished color. It always turns out really blue but it looks more like the during pictures then my finished one.

Thanks for looking!

Awesome! Now if I ever get a chance to purchase one of those bad boys, I won't be discouraged if it's the wrong color. Smiley
