coffee cup shelf near bed on 19' ??

Looking for ideas on a coffee cup shelf near the back of the bed on a 19'. I get the outside of the bed since I have to get up to use the bathroom several times a night (ain't getting older a gas?). My wife gets the inside next to the rear window. Since I am on the outside, I also am the coffee maker in the morning. We like to sit in bed and drink coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening. I can reach the galley counter to set my coffee and glasses. I need to put up a small shelf in the back so my wife can set her coffee/wine and glasses on it. Preferably it would be easily removable. Anyone found a way to do this? (brand new member, August 2019).

Made a combination cup holder/shelf system. What I did not want to do was put any holes in the wall. Removed the corner buttons and screws, attached my build shelf thing at the corner in their spot.

Wow, that is quite a system! Do the buttons just pop off? Did you use the same screws, or larger ones? Also, what style of trim/wood was used in the corner?
Many thanks for responding to my question. I am learning sooo much from this group!

Buttons pop off with a screwdriver. Just used slightly longer wood screws to account for the wood thickness. That wood is just scraps from the shop. Some is cedar. If you fancy a better wood or different thicknesses check out the hardwoods at Home Depot for poplar, or oak, etc.

Here's a shelf I built for our 19.



It is on the rear wall of the trailer. It's attached to the cabinets overhead with one arm stuck under the shade attachment to hold the whole thing tight against the rear wall.



Intended for book and (eye-)glasses, but an easy modification would allow it to work for (wine-)glasses.

I like that shelf system since I get stuck sleeping on the back wall. I usually have to put my stuff in the overhead cabinet at night.
