RP from crafts-painting snack tables for outdoor use

I have a few old snack tables that I'd like to sand, paint & decopage(sp) for outdoor use. I've never tried decopage before but I'm pretty crafty in general.
What type of paint should I use to make the tables semi-weather resistant & can I coat the decopaged tops with something to make them durable?
I needs lots of help!

Kelly-You can paint the tables with an outside type enamel.Do the decopage,then paint with several coats of Marine Varnish to seal.You might want to re seal them after the season is over or before using them again next year.I don't see why they wouldn't hold up well this way.Please post a picture when you get them done......Lillie
