Technically, that's forwarding not bridging.
Did you mean "without" rather than with?I have a Samsung Smart TV that has ethernet only, in a room with network outlets.

The reason for my query is that I am thinking of hard-wiring my home with ethernet but it is going to take a few months before I am able to get round to it.
My son would like to use the smart TV in his room now so I thought I could use the Pi as a temporary measure - I am not sure I could justify the expense of Power Adapters for such a short period.

You could but there is no need to use IP adresses in the same range as your router. The TV and the pi's ethernet are not on the same subnet as the router. I'd use a different address range for those as it'll save confusion down the line when you need to do any maintenance.
