Give a sweet little table half a chance and it will happily deliver a big lift to your bedroom
If you’re looking to give your bedroom a small-scale style update, adding upcycled bedside tables is a great place to start. Browse secondhand shops or online for a small character table that speaks your language, then simply slice, sand, seal and paint for a totally original duo at a fraction of the usual price.
