A ladder can become a very functional piece! It’s perfect as a nightstand because you can store a lot of things, so let’s make one. Select boards for shelves, wall supports, and something to connect the ladder to the wall. Lean the full ladder against the wall at the desired angle. Attach ladder to the wall with top brackets. Mark how long you desire the boards to be, then cut to size. Stain the boards if desired. Place cut boards on each step, touching the wall. Draw a line with a pencil underneath the boards to mark where your supports will go. Attach supports. Attach boards to steps by screwing underneath each step, so the screws don’t show. Voila!
