A Black & White Christmas Hot Drink Station (+ Win a Keurig 2.0!)

If you’ve been following my little blog, my Instagram or my Facebook page for a while you’ll know that I’m a coffee lover. Big time. I can’t get enough DIY vanilla lattes, and when we designed our home we built a little nook just for me and my coffee. I decked it out for Valentine’s Day earlier this year (and painted the whole thing with chalkboard paint on a whim), and now I’ve decorated it for our Christmas company this year.
