Guess what, it’s Thrift Store Decor Day and I found this awesome trash can but I didn’t see it as a trash can! Being made of ceramic, I thought it would be perfect to recreate a stoneware Crock project.

I included affiliate links to some of the products that I used, just click on the highlighted items.


  1. ceramic trash can
  2. painters tape
  3. spray paint
  4. sand paper
  5. rags to clean
  6. transfer/stencil for number
  7. Chalk Paste/paint for number


  • Lightly sand the crock.
  • Wipe to clean, with soap and water.
  • Tape to mask the area that you don’t want painted.
  • Spray paint according to the directions on the paint can.
  • After the spray paint dried, I use my font Chalk Couture transfer number 2, and Chalkology Paste to add the number. See in photo below.

And that’s it folks, project is complete. Add flowers, rolling pins or whatever you’d like to store in your antique-ish crock. I’ve moved it around the house several times and it’s really making me want a bunch of old rolling pins. I think I have or had some, I need to check the garage. Sometimes Barry loads up my treasures and takes them back to Goodwill. I would not be surprised if I haven’t bought some of my own stuff back from there.
