Question Has anyone done this before?

I was watching if walls could talk last night on HGTV and they showed a bathroom wallpapered in newspapers. I would love to do this. We live in a small town and my kids have been in the papers numerous times for sports and school things and I have saved the old papers so I would LOVE to wallpaper their playhouse with these and other newspapers.
I need to know how I could do this without the newpaper print smearing. I figured I could probably just put it on with wallpaper glue but need to know what I could put over it so it will not tear or yellow and will look kind of glossy any clues??

Thanks Sherry

Wallpapering with newspapers

Where I grew up, folks used newspapers for wallpaper. It seems everything old is becoming new again. You might want to make this post on the wallpaper forum.
