Opulent Items' Waterproof Pool Table ($6,500) is one of the "craziest home decor pieces we've ever seen." The billiards table has a traditional slate top, but is finished with completely weather-resistant materials so that it can be installed in your swimming pool or even a courtyard fountain. Each table is made to order and constructed of corrosion-resistant aluminum. If you'd rather not have it hogging space in the pool, just have it set up on the lawn.
