the problem. Then one day, I saw a catalog item with slide out tray designed to sit under the Keurig machine. This required no additional counter space since it fit neatly under the machine exactly where the coffee should be. However, I was not a fan of the $25 (plus $8 shipping) price. So, my quest changed... to find a similar solution, but for less $$.
Just this weekend, we found a plastic drawer unit, almost like the catalog item. Before victory could be proclaimed, we had to address a few issues: 1. Could it hold the weight of the machine full of water? 2. Was there a danger of the plastic getting hot and compromising the stability (or worse, causing a fire?) and 3. Would it look good?
Victory proclaimed! We painted the clear plastic drawer black to match the coffee maker and reinforced the top with a scrap piece of concrete backer board (also painted black) The backer board serves two purposes - it stabilizes the top and separates any heat issues between the Keurig and the plastic drawer! Problem solved for a little over $9! Sweet! (and it holds over 30 K-cups!)
