Decoupage with Pattern Tissue Paper

Love this idea! I first read about this from Threads.com, but the idea originated from the blogs Pitter and Glink and Modge Podge Rocks. Here's the idea: take an old piece of furniture (decorative side tables work best) and make it new with your old patterns. Depending on where the pieces will end up, use the patterns accordingly - such as using crafts and kids' patterns for something in the kids room (they will generally have a character's shape to cut out for appliques, etc.)

Here are the links directly to their sites. Now all I need is a visit to the local swap meet for a table for this project.
If you're looking for other ideas for combining crafts and sewing patterns:
