The word "decoupage" comes from the French and means "cut out" or "cut from something." Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cut-outs onto it. Each layer is sealed with varnish until the cut-outs no longer look stuck on, and the result is the appearance of a painting or inlay work instead.
The White House has been the home not just to the Presidents and the First Families, but also to all their family pets. Presidential pets have included barnyard animals, exotic birds, bears, alligators, and domesticated cats and many, many dogs . From FDR's Fala and the Bushes' Barney to the Obamas' Bo and Sunny, some of these pets have themselves become household names across America.
