Fun Friday: A Ping Pong Dining Table

Happy Friday everyone! Usually I schedule my blog posts to publish in the wee hours of the morn, but because I forgot to hit the Schedule button for some strange reason that didn’t happen. Must be because I was in a hurry to go out to dinner with my handsome husband of technical problems. But here it is!

We’re a family that likes to play ping pong. We’re also a family that likes to dine al fresco or as we like to call it, out on the porch.  And we like to do both on the downstairs porch, because that’s were the pool is and it’s closer to the kitchen. However, there’s not enough room for a ping pong table and a dining table. Or so I thought! As I was flipping through the latest issue of Elle Decor, I found just the thing! An outdoor ping pong table that also doubles as a dining table. It has contemporary styling and it’s beautiful!

Take a look…

James De Wulf Ping Pong Dining Table

Pretty cool, isn’t it? It’s by James De Wulf and according to their website, it’s made of concrete and steel. However, Elle Decor says it’s made of “concrete and reinforced lightweight carbon fiber”. Either way, I don’t imagine it’s going to blow away in a storm. The table is regulation size and comes with a clip on net. It’s also available in various colors.  The one shown is light gray.

What I like most about it, is that it doesn’t look like a ping pong table at all – that is until you put the net on. I love the contemporary lines. But I don’t feel it limits itself just to contemporary design. My house is Mediterranean style and it would look great here.

The only drawback for me is the price. At $7,000 it’s not going to be making it’s way onto my porch anytime soon. However, one could use it for inspiration if one was so inclined. Wink. Wink.

Before you go, I hope you’ll leave me a comment. It always makes my day when I hear from you. Enjoy your weekend!

Have a great day,
