No room for a side table? Use a ladder instead!

This ladder side table not only solved a multitude of space issues, you can whip it up in a short couple of hours.
Random boards were cut to size, then stained with a fancy dancy simple paint treatment.
 
The boards are held into place via support boards mounted directly to the wall. 
 
 
Naturally now I needed something junky for jewellrey. One thing always leads to another, no? Pipes were screwed together with a gear weighting down the base, and ending with a tap.
The stepladder side table looks mightly swanky with that horse gate headboard and pipe handled bed tray if I do say so myself!
Do all your projects have several names attached as well? Google must love us...

I wanted a king sized bed! There, I said it. But with room for little else, that left me in a bit of a bind for a side table.

A ladder sealed the deal. It takes little space, and all your junk has it's own shelf! A ladder is also a total win for the taller beds nowadays.

I love my ladder sidetable and it was a breeze to make! Here's how I did it...
