Floating table held by strings with pulley system for up / down?


My room is rather full so i had the idea to build a table that can be lifted up to the ceiling when not needed to save space and act as a cool feature.  My room has a slanted roof and the section that's not slanted ( in the middle) is 43 inches wide and 100 inches tall. length isn't a problem(more than 100")this spot would be an optimal place to build the "levitable". I have access to pulleys and string and all that stuff so i can build it no problem, but I'm not a master with ropes or pulleys or mechanics and I don't know the best way to make this work. Thanks a lot!!

You might do either an Instructables or a Google search for "overhead storage." There are Instructables which explain how to do exactly what you want, or you can get ideas from pictures of the commercial products.
