We have a splendid hand-me-down hutch in the kitchen. It holds jars full of bounty. It is a comforting sight.
I know my store is not technically large enough to be called a granary. I love the word granary. I took artistic license; that thing you can call upon to make something different than what it is.
This hutch holds many items: kitchen towels and napkins, cook books, dried peppers and pasta, hot sauces, my prized recipe box and the requisite odds and ends.
I needed a tactile project. I had this roll of beautiful wall paper. I had dozens of jars. I knew sunlight to be “bad for” grain storage longevity. I wanted a unifying element for the myriad different pieces on the hutch. A project was born and a solution was made.
