Reviving a Kitchen Aid Mixer


IMG_0051My husband gave me this Kitchen Aid mixer that his mother used for more than thirty years! Kitchens were outfitted with beige appliances at that time, so this mixer in its original state beautifully complemented Jacqueline’s décor.

I really desired a total refurbishing job for the small appliance, but I opted on a fresh coat of paint instead. I had the robin’s egg blue on hand and went to work, much to my husband’s chagrin! But three of the four Beamers love it, and I think that’s a win!

Even though the metal plate has a bit of rust showing its age, I still cherish this special piece of our family’s heritage. My mother-in-law was an excellent cook and baker, so I am honored to continue the tradition of kitchen creations using her trusty mixer!
