    Hi there, what does your bedroom set look like? If it is painted then it would be pretty easy to just paint your table to match. If it is a specific color of stain you will need to sand this little table down and stain it but that will only be possible if its solid wood.

    Chalk paint in a complimentary colour and wax,leave the top as is and get a piece of glass cut to fit, a large storage basket underneath to store all your stuff, stand back and admire a job well done

    I am not a fan of painting wood. It destroys the item, especially if it is old. A few things I have done with other small pieces. Sand and restain to match the rest of your set. If the surface is uneven, you can find some reclaimed wood and lay it on the top using Liquid Nails. You could put a piece of glass on it with some family pictures or wallpaper underneath.

    To compensate for the uneven top, try adding either felt 'dots' or little plastic spacers such that the glass ( mentioned in the above idea) floats above the top.

    Good luck on your project!

    I would stain, or paint it a different color. Stain will require less upkeep over the long term. Either way, paint or stain, sand in between a couple of times and paint to get a quality finish. Review it before the task. The table looks low. I would add another drawer/table, wheels,legs to raise it up. Another drawer for storage and put it on wheels. Or, just raise it on wheels and put a basket in the bottom area for additional storage. You may have another item around the house to combine the two into one functional unit. If it is a veneer, painting is the way to go. For an uneven top fill in with wood putting and sand to level out, or decoupage and seal. Could build it up with 1x6 boards on bottom and wheels. Sit it on an old metal frame from a garden item, or something not in use anymore. Could just leave the color it is and add another darker, or lighter stain to antique it etc.. Check local resale stores etc. for items to build it up. If you have kids turn it into a family project of ideas and plans. Then have fun doing it together. A real confidence builder for your kids. Good luck and have fun!
