A kitchen geek is lost without her KitchenAid. Sometimes I wish I had two or three of them, but I settle for having two bowls and multiple attachments for everything from casing sausage to extruding pasta. What I don’t have is an awesome design on it. I should work on that. Meanwhile, I’ll gaze at these:

Alas, most of us don’t live in Brazil. But you can buy decals for your KitchenAid designed for mixers that are blue. white, or red.

You can always go hand-painted if you’re a committed DIY geek, but the easiest route is vinyl decals, and Etsy is a treasure trove of them. Click the names in the captions to go to their stores.

    LOVE!!! Makes me wish I had a KitchenAir mixer. I already broke my mom’s a while back (got a spatula stuck in the beaters while it was running) so I’m not sure I should invest the money!

    I have a geeked-up KitchenAid! My husband got these for me last Christmas:
