    Lynn, check my attached photobucket, there are some pics of the machines we have done. That may give you some ideas, I just love them painted and I also love them original. Haven't found my favorite color yet, still trying them all. LOL Best wishes with your choice.

    There were a few of our members (before the format changed) that had colored Featherweights as their avatar. One was Purple, one was Red and one was Blue. I haven't seen them in a while. Perhaps LostN51 would have a few pictures of one. My DH is going to paint one Purple for me. My favorite color.

    I love the Kandy Apple red. I also like the pink on your avatar. Thanks for sharing.

    Saw a hot pink metallic FW at a quilt show last year. Funky! LOL
