If you really feel the need to paint it, I suggest you take it to an auto body place and let them paint it professionally, but I don't think it will be cheap.
Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't get bent out of shape over a mixer that doesn't match the applicances.
Ditto reysgirl. I'd take it to autobody if you really want it done.
However, I think black and white match just fine even if it sitting on the counter. The contrast might even be nice.
I just wouldn't trust spray paint on a mixer. I don't think it'd come out even or well covered. That and I'm not anal about food safety at all..but all that spray paint would freak me out.
How about buying some black decals/vinyl art to put on your mixer to make it blend in.
I wouldn't risk doing it...although I wonder if Alton Brown's flame mixer was a DIY job or if he had people do it for him. I did see where you could get stickers/decals, but I don't think that's what his is.
decemberwedding07:I wouldn't worry about it at all. I don't think that a mixer has to match your appliances. Kitchen aid mixers come in colors like red, pink, and yellow, and I know that NOBODY has appliances that color. I don't think a mixer has to match the appliances, it should just not clash with them.
Good point! I didn't even think about that.
