What a Crock Side Table
I found this crock at an estate sale.
It was the kitchen garbage can!
Of course I had to rescue it from a life of rotten banana peels and coffee grounds so I scooped it up for $50.
It’s HUGE and was made by National Pottery in Roseville, Ohio.
I love the red wood and metal handles.
The 12 means it can hold 12 gallons.
I turned it into a side table by adding an old piece of round wood on top.
It’s the perfect little reading corner and I’ve been having fun pouring over this new travel book. So many gorgeous photos as I dream of the places I’ll go.
It’s held plants and wrapping paper and umbrellas so who knows how long it will remain a table but for now, I’m loving it.
What a crock!

What a find!! That must be super heavy. Love it.
Awesome find … LOVE how you repurposed it! Happy Easter, friend!
I love quirky side tables. This crock one is so inspired Kelly and it looks great! 🙂
I have a few of these old crocks one big one and three smaller ones. I love yours and the idea of a table, very clever!
I have never seen one with handles before—what a find !!!
Thanks Leticia – the handles make it easy to lug around the house!
I fondly remember going to that estate sale with you. I bought a bunch of wine crates there. I used one as a bike basket, but the others are still wine crates. Gotta come up with some ideas on how to repurpose them. I love your idea of making a side table with your crock. XO
That was so much fun Diane! Remember the dozens of old wooden racks on casters?! If only we could have scooped all of them up
Kelly, Wow, I’ve never seen a crock so big. That is so cool. Hey, I was made in Ohio too. LOL Pat S
Ha! I lived in Ohio for 4 years!
Great find! So smart to turn it into a table. Much better than a trash can!
Thanks Meg – I’m glad I rescued it from that horrible life as a trash can!
I can not believe someone was using this a trashcan. Super cute as an table !!
I know Hope – glad you like it!
Love the crock as a table Kelly!
I, too, have a crock table but the difference is that my crock is an old Rosebud Peanut butter crock It held 32 lbs of peanut butter. It is shorter than yours so in order to make it an end table I put it upon a doctors exam room step stool. My husband made a chunky wood top for it that rests on a lip inside the opening. I love old crocks and I have a small collection of them. The smaller ones make great display risers and they all provides great storage. I love your crock table and your blog!
32lbs! It must be amazing Sheryl! I’m suddenly craving Skippy!
