Converting a reactable to ggplot (or similar)

I've currently got a reactable stored as an object in some code. I'd like to be able to convert said object into a ggplot, but no matter what I do, I get variations of the same error. The reactable is derived from a pretty simple dataframe as set up below:

df <- structure(list(Date = c("2019-02-09", "2019-02-09", "2019-02-09", 
"2019-02-09", "2019-02-09", "2019-02-09", "2020-02-09", "2020-02-09", 
"2020-02-09", "2020-02-09", "2021-02-09", "2021-02-09", "2021-02-09", 
"2021-02-09"), Type = c("HUF", "HAD", "WOK", "STR", "HUF", "HAD", 
"WOK", "STR", "HUF", "HAD", "WOK", "STR", "HUF", "HAD"), Value = c(12L, 
226394L, 27566L, 217098L, 208463L, 9320L, 156607L, 19790L, 24541L, 
1074419L, 17250L, 12249L, 43651L, 45121L)), class = "data.frame", row.names = c(NA, 

react_df <- reactable(df, highlight =  TRUE, compact = TRUE,pagination = FALSE)


Is this possible?

EDIT: Here's the reactable that I'm looking to convert:

react_df <- reactable(df, highlight = TRUE, compact = TRUE,pagination = FALSE, columns = list(Date = colDef(name = "Last Recorded", align = 'center'), Type = colDef(name = "Category", align = 'center'), Value = colDef(name = "Change(s)", align = 'center', cell = data_bars(df, background = "white", border_width = "2px", bar_height = 3, align_bars = "left", text_position = "outside-end", max_value = 1, number_fmt = scales::percent))))


One way to add a table to a ggplot is with the ggpmisc package. The code below adds the table to a plot at (0, 0).

Note - the lines starting with "theme" are not necessary but added for formatting purposes.


ggplot() +
  annotate(geom = "table", x = 0, y = 0, label = list(df)) +
  # below removes all plot labels, gridlines (not necessary)
  theme_minimal() +
  theme(panel.grid = element_blank(),
        axis.text = element_blank(),
        axis.title = element_blank()

Thanks a lot for looking into it, it's not quite what I'm after. There's some small changes done in the reactable I'm looking for (updated OP)
