So I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with a good use for a slightly damaged road bicycle frame. I would like to make it into a furniture piece of some sort, was thinking an end table or perhaps a wall art. I was wondering if anyone had anything in mind and might be able to help with a concept for this! It is just in the thought stages, so don't know if I will actually make anything of it, or if it will just hang on the wall in my hopeful future bicycle themed living room. It is, after all, just a frame, there are no rims or pedals or anything on it, so I'm not sure how this could theorhetically turn into a table or anything...
Thanks!!

my mum has a vintage frame on one of her walls.
sometimes she hangs stuff off of it.

also to build a table you could plant the part of the bike the wheels attach to (in cement or wood or whatever) and then place a wooden board on top of the handlebar/seats.

My dad bought an old 40s/50s vintage peddle bike and my parents are going to paint it up and stick it in the garden and put plants in it. We seen something like that done in a magazine and it's totally my parents style and it looks great!

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.
