I have never myself done any decoupage but I have some wonderful pieces that my mom did when she was younger. It is the art of covering furniture or little items (like the ones below) with paper (stamps, maps, photographs, etc) and painting them over with a glue mixture or a lacquer, sanding when dry, and repeating for several layers.

You can find instructions on how it's done right here.

Here are some wonderful examples of vintage decoupage that I saw at an antique mall and will eventually duplicate! :)

Map on an egg timer. Use to know how long to brush your teeth.

Stamped box. Very classic. Very cool.
