How to repurpose antique sewing machine parts?


I've seen many various ways to re purpose the base of antique treadle sewing machines, but I'm trying to find a purpose just for the treadle (foot pedal) itself. Does anyone have ideas or seen anything creative done with just this part? Thanks!

    Maybe add a simple top onto the legs and use as a plant stand.

    Hi Lynn: You might be able to put some felt on the edges and use it as a trivet, as a wall hanging or get someone to weld legs on it and use it as a stand for plants, dog food bowls or as a decorative table with a glass top. Good luck
