An improved paint mixer is disclosed which includes a base and an upper cabinet pivotally connected to the base. The upper cabinet can be pivoted from a first rearward position which provides access to a front section of the base and a second forward position which provides access to a rear section of the base. As a result, both the front and rear section of the base are easily accessible for service, maintenance, and cleaning. A support system that includes three adjustable legs provides improved support and stability. Casters disclosed at the rear end of the bottom of the base along with a recessed wall of the base and a handle disposed at the front of the base make it easier to move and/or relocate the mixer. Non-stick coatings in the form of a paint-resistant coating or an anti-graffiti coating to the inside surfaces of the mixer facilitate the removal of accumulated paint.
