Kitchen Aid Subway Art Vinyl Decal Tutorial


This post contains affiliate links.

I love color (maybe a little too much).  When I bought my kitchen aid I didn't have the option of getting one of the pretty colored ones (I really badly wanted one...).  I went with the plain white one because I knew that I could do something to it.  So I did just that, I don't think that it's plain anymore, do you?  :)

Here it is before, so white and plain.  I like simple things, but I don't care for plain...

Before I cut out the vinyl, I carefully planned the size and color of each word.  I actually ended up adding a few more words at the end. Here is the list of fonts that I use:
Chocolate: AR Bonnie
dough: smiley monster
sugar: too much papper
brownies: {Skinny} jeans solid
knead: LD dotty
Stir: Cafe Rojo
yummy: Lavanderia Regular
Bake: CK cosmopolitan
Eggs: LD woodland
Homemade: pharmacy
bread: pea noodles girlfriends
cupcakes: impact
Cook: wish I was taller
mix: Aharoni
cookies: scrap round
flour LD Cotton Candy

Once I got all of the colors and sizes figured out, I cut them out of vinyl using my Silhouette

I used transfer paper and starting putting them onto the kitchen aid.  It was a little tricky with the curves, so you just have to go slow.

I continued putting the vinyl onto the base of it too.

And that's it!!  I love how it turned out!

I am in the EXACT same boat. My KA is 15 years old.. back when they only came in white, and I just got a brand new Cameo, and have been dying to spiff her up.

I am curious how it wipes down once the vinyl is on it. My mixer gets pretty gross (especially when the kids are 'helping' me bake) so I don't want crud to get stuck in the decals. Have you had any trouble?

I love your design by the way. Super cute!

This may be a stupid question but I'm going to ask anyway.
How did you get the letters colored?
