Five Examples of Why You Should Not Pimp Your KitchenAid
The time has come to showcase some of the unnecessary hideousness Pinterest has to offer. Let's be real... There is a lot of stuff on there that just shouldn't exist. Beginning with KitchenAid mixer decals.
I didn't realize what a phenomenon this was until I started paying attention. I just can't understand it. KitchenAids are classy and timeless and should remain as such. Why would you want to deface yours?
Let's take a look at some of the worst KitchenAid "pimps."
5. Flower Power
Unless you're 12-years-old, this is unacceptable.
And if you're 12 and own a stand mixer, that, too, is unacceptable. Either way it's out of the question. The caption for this read, "I need to bling out my KitchenAid." Flowers are not bling. I will show you bling in just a bit.
4. A is for _______.
Someone is making money selling these "personalized stickers" in their Etsy shop. This one is a little more adult from the above, but not by much.
It's not necessary to put your initial on your stand mixer. If it's in your kitchen, we know it's yours.
And unfortunately those aren't all the hideous creations we found on Pinterest. Page through to see more.
This "Vintage Floral Custom Painted KitchenAid Stand Mixer," is only $500! Click here to buy it. I detest this style. I was once told this style of decoration makes a house look "elegant." If this is elegant, I'm not down.
Two and One:
What can I say? I've just never been fond of animal prints... Unless they're on the actual animals. Then I like them just fine. But not in the kitchen and definitely NOT on the KitchenAid! And unless you're gonna be baking cookies at your next bachelorette party, this blinged-out monstrosity is totally out of line. I can't even imagine trying to clean this thing. DO NOT, under any circumstance, bedazzle your KitchenAid!
