Boise, ID asked in Landlord - Tenant for Idaho

Q: Can a landlord make us remove a pingpong table? She statedbthe table can damage walls and must be removed?

4 of us roommates moved into a 4 bedroom house. We are all around 21-25 tears of age. The house is pretty big and we had an empty space to fill so we bought a ping pong table. Well the landlord saw and re received a message saying the ping pong table needed to be removed as it can damage walls and floors of the house, we don't really see how as it's just a table and it's a normal ping pong ball. There's nothing in the lease saying about restrictions of furniture and nothing has been damaged we don't wanna start a fight with them but they want the table outside which can't happen as it would ruin the table.
