Fast forward a few days later, and I was so excited to get this little package in the mail. It contained tons of decals, a page of detailed instructions on how to do this project, and bonus - some links to some YouTube videos for the visual learners like me.

|There were a ton of decals in the pack. Very nice!|

The next step is to get some blue painter's tape (hey, I JUST happened to have that, I just painted my kitchen, how did you KNOW!?) and tape your selected shape at the top and press firmly a few times, making a flap of sorts.
|My first decal. I was so nervous and wanted to get it right the FIRST time.|
|The painter tape acts as a "hinge" so your decal stays in place while it's all sticky and vulnerable|
|The more flexible backing side comes right off and the design is now firmly on your mixer|
|Four pieces down - no turning back now!|
|Holy cow, it's turning out so cute!!!|
I decided to put the Kitchenaid back on the counter, with the silver bowl back in place for the full effect. You can see that I decided to leave the center part where the bowl sits white (I thought that gave it a nice contrast) and I can't believe how NICE it looks with my new aqua walls! My hubby came home and was actually impressed. He said it gave it "personality".

So if you have an older mixer (before all the snazzy colors came out), or even if you have one of those newfangled colors, you can get some awesome decals for under $20 and try out a cool design that matches your kitchen. Check out Good Golly Graphics because, not only can she customize the shown design into a ton of specialized colors (even silver and white), I found out she's an Army wife and doing this as home business while her hubby is deployed and she's keeping down the fort at home, so it's a great way to support the troops too. By the way, the exact design I picked is called "Flourish kitchen mixer swirl decal" and you can find it by clicking here. She had a ton of colors to choose from.
