Stoneware Crock Makeover

Thanks for sharing!

Happy March sweet friends! The clouds and rain broke to beautiful skies in order for me to work on this month's Thrift Store Makeover. I really appreciate that sunshine because we have more rain setting back in. 

This month I am sharing how easy it is to makeover a crock for that fabulous farmhouse stoneware look!

Be sure to follow to the end of the post for links to the other projects this month from the team. 

Stoneware Crock Makeover

You can get this look with a variety of containers!

  • old kitchen canisters without the lid
  • old utensil holders
  • vases
  • old coffee can
  • pots


Here is the before. It is a nice and heavy piece. The shape is perfect for flowers or even stove side for utensils. It's perfect in every way except for the color. Would you believe that red is really the one color that I'm not a huge fan of? Crazy right! 

I was able to squeeze this project in while doing some serious painting in our kitchen. I've been finishing up the cabinets and the wood tongue and groove in the breakfast area. It is really brightening up the kitchen. I can't wait to finish and decorate it!

This was such a simple makeover with spray paint. Yes, paint will adhere to items like this. 

If you want the look without the DIY, here are a couple of ready to go crocks that I found for you!

  • Drop Cloth
  • blocks to raise item
  • spray nozzle


  1. Clean your item and let it dry thoroughly
  2. Place the item upside down raised on blocks
  3. Spray a couple of very light coats on the item drying between coats
  4. Turn item right side up
  5. Spray item in same manner as above until thoroughly coated
  6. Spray entire inside or just upper area that will be shown.
  7. Stencil front if desired
  8. Spray with a top coat


Very important to spray with very light coats to avoid drips and runs. Too much spray paint at once is not a good thing.

This paint did an amazing job on this piece. It really created a smooth finish. 

I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I've had it in the pantry closet holding utensils that we don't use a lot. Now it will be out to be seen!


I am totally in love with it now. The color is perfect for our kitchen. I'll also be using it with flower arrangements.

  1. It’s pretty but I really like the red color for that crock much better. To me it looks too elegant to be a farmhouse crock. Red reminds me more of a farmhouse color or possibly blue. I would consider your crock more of a French farmhouse or French cottage type of look. Everyone is so different and that’s what makes things beautiful. You did a beautiful job. I think maybe it’s just me. I like that little bit more of a rustic farmhouse look about things.

  2. Wow! Christy, the paint took this stoneware crock to the next level. It always amazes me how a color can make or break a project. Super job friend!



  3. Great makeover and perfect utensil holder. I have been on the look out for crocks while thrifting and visiting antique malls. Nothing yet, but hopeful.

    Looking forward to seeing the kitchen!


  4. Oh my goodness, Christie! I live in Spartanburg, SC! Where in Upstate SC are you? I love your blog. So helpful and doable. Your diys are just the thing. Thanks so much for all the ideas.


    1. Hi, Delanie! I’m in the Powdersville area. Small world! Thanks so much. Look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you!

I love hearing from you!
