[R] converting a table to a dataframe or a matrix

can someone show me how to convert a table to a data.frame or a matrix ? I tried below and as.data.frame rearranges the columns similarly to a melt from reshape and as.matrix didn't change it. I actually would prefer to change it to a dataframe but if someone can show me how to convert it to a matrix, then as.data.frame will work on that. I was thinking about just changing the class to matrix since table looks very similar to a matrix but I wasn't sure if that would cause side injuries. thanks.
