The Domino Effect, where one thing leads to another resulting in an unstoppable cascade of events. We are all aware of this effect, as there are few of us who’ve not played with those little rectangular Domino tiles as children. Carefully we would line them up one behind the other and then with a slight flick of our tiny finger we’d knocked the first kingpin over, watching as tile after tile toppled in rapid succession down the path we had so diligently mapped out. I never actually played the true game of dominos until I was well in my 30’s; perhaps I never realized that those dots on each tile were there for other reasons than merely decoration.
In my last post I mentioned our new Keurig single served coffee brewer and hinted that with all the K-Cups we were accumulating our tiny kitchen space might require some modifications. So begins the Domino Effect.

Photo below...All the K-cups and paraphernalia that accompanies our new Keurig. You may notice the limited counter space in that tight little corner.
Photo above...There was a cabinet there, where the bare concrete of the foundation shows. We had to remove the solid surface counter top in order to remove the cabinet. The counter top is resting on the top of our coffee table, which is visible in the background.
Photo below...This is the cabinet that sat in the corner, that had the counter top, that was in the kitchen that Jack built.
Photo above...Notice the wall is open allowing service to the family/TV room. The cabinet that was there is now sitting in our living room. Our plan is to interchange our oven cabinet for the drawer cabinet. So this means the ovens will have to come out, the cabinet will have to be detached from wherever and whatever it is attached to and then moved down to the end were the smaller drawer cabinet was.
Photos below...The framing goes in.
Photo above and below...The ovens have been removed. Does this mean I don't have to cook ? Ha, only in my dreams!
Photo above...John's removed the the counter top to this tiny 9 inch Tray Cabinet, it will remain where it is and the larger drawer cabinet will come in and rest alongside of it. A new 36 inch wall cabinet is on order (has been for about 3 weeks now). Someday, when this project is over I will have 45 inches of counter space here to work on instead of 9 inches. I have on a happy face right now just thinking about that.
Photo below...The oven cabinet now keeps the drawer cabinet company in our living room. That big black boxy thing in the background is the oven and microwave unit. Really don't miss the oven that much but the microwave has been sorely missed.
Photo above...Drywalling is done. All we're waiting for is the 36 inch wall cabinet and we can get this baby done.
Photo below...Meanwhile this is how I'm living. It maybe easier to see which drawer has what pot in it but as far as interior design goes; it stinks!
Hopefully it won't be much longer before the wall cabinet comes in and we can finish up this project that all started out because of a new coffee maker and too many K-Cups. I'll keep you posted.
