What Houzz contributors are saying:
Source an unusual bedside tableEschew the usual humdrum bedside surfaces for something different. A vintage tea chest makes for a quirky table and adds a retro character that changes the feel of a bedroom. The lettering will vary with each one for an original touch. You can pick tea crates up for around £50 each online if you hunt around – so a pair should cost around £100. You could also opt for old trunks and suitcases for a similar vibe.How have you transformed your bedroom quickly and on a budget? Tell/show us in the Comments section.
Repurpose second-hand piecesInstead of buying new furniture, which can be costly, repurpose a vintage piece. An old tea chest or a stack of vintage suitcases can work as a bedside table, for example, while old wooden fruit crates make useful wall-mounted storage. Think laterally as you scour junk shops and vintage sales looking for cheap and unusual buys that could be reimagined as a useful, characterful item of bedroom furniture.
