  • I have my grandmother's and mom's old stockpots on a bakers rack in my kitchen. They now contain dog food or treats. Also you could punch a few holes in the bottom to make an outdoor plant container or even a hanging one with chain, or anything else you may already have. Would look great with herbs growing out of it or in summer a colorful annual or maybe a geranium. If you are lucky enough to have a pantry, you could use for storage - cookie cutters - pie tools - anything purchased in bulk. Or if you have designated craft space, who can't use more storage there? Hope this jump starts your creative juices flowing! I am sure you will find a smashing great idea - then share with all of us!

    Depends on the size you could paint them with copper paint and use it to hold wood. You could put it on it's side and do a fairy house thing. You could donate them if you don't use them and they are in good condition. A small Christmas tree stand. Paint it orange for a pumpkin use the cover as a stem maybe glue a stick to it. Use it for a topiary. If its large enough turn it upside down add cushion make a foot stool or a piece of wood or glass to make a table. Have fun with be sure to take picture and post it.

    I would leave them as is and use them to hold pet treats/food or decorate seasonally. They would be really nice with Fall berries and Winter/Christmas greens.

    Decoupage, wrap in Washi tape, paper tape or colorful duct tape, cover in fabric or an old sweater cut and sewn to fit, then paint the lid to match.

    My mother-in-law would love a stock pot to hold all of her knitting yarn and needles. I could paint it some neon or psychedelic color, then add clips to hold a plastic bag liner. When she changes projects, she could just change out the plastic bag. She's 100, but she has several projects going at once. Thanks for the inspiration! 😇
