need Help with this Table...amazing..help

Marisa JensenDecember 3, 2012
I have an amazing table, but its massive 7'x9'....I have a normal sized home around 2600 sq ft. It was originally an architectural model table for a condo development. I love the legs, and even thought about turning the top moulding into a leaning mirror. If I don't use it soon ill have to sell it....running out of room.

In that last picture, it almost looks like a pool table. I wonder if you could add a slate top and use it as one?

There are three "standard" pool table sizes - 7-foot (3.5' x 7'), 8-foot (4' x 8') and 9-foot (4.5' x 9').

It is beautiful and If you can not fin a place for it in your own home, I home you can find it a new home, INTACT!

Thank you...I actually spoke with a pool table company. Not really what I was thinking though.
It is a challenging piece to place because of the size. Maybe painting it, and using it as an island.

The top might make a wonderful focal window somewhere. The bottom looks more like a coffee table to me. Guess the pic deforms it a bit.

The legs are standard table leg height...it does distort it some.

Agreed..after hearing feedback I think your right. Put it on craigslist, but does anyone else have great places to sell something like this?? I don't know!

I saw this on one of the decorating shows on tv, can't remember which one. Anyway, the couple had a table they loved and no place to put it. The designer sawed the table in half, and then mounted the halves along the wall to use as a sideboard. Yours is very wide, but I bet it would work if you cut it narrower than 1/2. I know it's awful to cut apart such a nice table, but if you love it and want to keep it, this is a way you can do it.

Can you have a carpenter reduce the size to make it more useable for you? The middle apron would have to be redone, but might be worth it. Then add a glass top for somethng unique.

This picture features the table off to the right hand side when it was used with the model. Better idea

Maybe the builder (or another builder) wants to buy it back from you to use in their next project.

We have a pool table in a dedicated room, open to the kitchen. It has panels that came with it to make it into a table. During the Holidays we put the top on and it is like King Richards Table. I bought oversized linens and decor. It is quite a statement piece:-) If you entertain, you may find a use for this grand piece.
