Josefina’s Bedside Table $29 Item# JDF
"Josefina’s wooden table is made the traditional way, with mortise and tenon construction, instead of with nails. In 1824, its rustic red finish might have come from a paint made of clay, madder root, and other natural materials. The table also features a pullout drawer--the perfect place for Josefina's treasures."
This is a cute table and the New Mexican style is so authentic. The table is very lightweight and the wood it's made out of is very thin and a bit fragile.
Josefina's Bedside Table
The size of the table seems a bit small for a 9 year-old, but it is bedside table size compared to her bed, which is also a bit off scale if Josefina is 9.
Size compared to Josefina
The table has a slide-out drawer with a leather handle instead of a knob to open it with.
The red-rustic finish makes it look very hand made, even though all the corners and edges are very straight and smooth and not a hand-tooled look to it at all (as opposed to her table and chairs set.)
Over all, it seems sturdy enough to hold her Nighttime Necessities. The look is great. I give it an over grade of A-
