Twice I have received this imaginative substitution in student papers. The context is something like this, “Most wives don’t want to be placed on a pedal stool, but they do want to be respected and esteemed.”
A version of this is already in the Database: http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/english/297/pedastool/
See the first comment for an eg. of “pedalstool.”
