DIY: Vintage Step Ladder as Bedside Table

It’s fun to put a new spin on an old piece, which is why we love this idea of using a vintage painter’s stepladder for an impromptu bedside table. Perfectly tiered for books and personal goods, one can be easily sourced from Ebay or Etsy (like this one shown above, currently on offer from Crown Willow), or maybe even your backyard!

I've seen this idea before and think it's cute,however,I would have one heck of a mess when things fell off.-lamp,clock-reading materials..and if you're going to read in bed, of course,you need a beverage-I do anyway.And with a beverage,I have coasters.Most times,I read for 2 hours or more.-Then I have a couple of sentimental items also.No..not practical for me but in a guest bedroom a possibility.I really like your idea Nancy P.--a cat tree is perfect!

Cool but the "shelves" are a bit narrow....
