That is awesome.  I am currently covering some bookshelves with newspaper in a similar fashion, but I can't get that great shiny finish like you got.  The high-gloss sealer I bought just yellowed the newspaper, and it isn't shiny at all.  I'm so jealous of your result.

Thank you! I just used a brand from Home Depot and it said 'superior durability & polyurethane' on the front. It was called 'clear gloss.' It was $9! I am now using it for all of my projects like this, hehe.

This is great! Where do you get the stuff you used to seal it and how does it work? Any safety measures needed like masks and gloves?

i did the exact same ting a few years ago on a less-attractively-shaped side table, and a trunk-type thing. i totally forgot about that (i gave them to a friend). will take pictures and post them ASAP! yours looks amazing with the white paint. mine was just full collage.

That look FANTASTIC!  I've been planning to do the same thing to a stereo cabinet I'm refurbishing, but holding off for fear of a bad result.  If mine even looks half as good as yours, I'll be happy!  That's awesome!
