Moving Cabinet above Refrigerator to make room for new Refrigerator

I have an idea and I really need some thoughts from all you expert cabinet/remodel/woodworkers. 

I have attached some pictures.  What I am wanting to do is move the cabinet forward and in front of the soffit(I think that is what they call it) and up against the ceiling.

I was thinking I could use a small french cleat to attach it to the soffit part and then screw it into the ceiling where the cross beams are.  

I have ordered a french door/freezer on the bottom frig and it is taller than what I have now.  I don't want to lose the cabinet and was thinking that moving it forward and up would give me better access to it and make use of it vs just removing it.

Any great ideas that include the least amount of destruction/construction would be most valued.  

Thank you as always!

My other option, which I do not want to do, is to remove the cabinet permanently.

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
