Answer: 
Definitely not a door. But a 32 inch gate....sure! Just make sure you bring it inside if it's going to rain.

Answer: 
It is not thick enough to make a door and MDF is not designed for outdoors. MDF is compressed paper and sawdust, it cannot take any water. I do not think that you could ever seal it all the way with painting all sides plus caulking it to prevent water from penetrating it.

No sure exactly what you mean, but I would say definitely NOT. This material is MDF, not wood. It is meant to be attached securely to the wall.

Answer: 
I'm thinking probably wouldn't work for a door, as it is paneling so thin. There also would be no contiguous sheet of a length for a door, unless you are thinking of a doggy door for a tiny dog. The panels are 6 inches wide and kind of slide together to make up the 8 linear ft. They are only 32 inches high.

Answer: 
Not unless you have carpentry tools like a router to put a notch in the top of your baseboard. The panels slide into a notch on the top of the baseboard that is provided, which helps hold it in place.

You could use a different baseboard but this one has a groove that fits the beadboard panels and makes a very neat look easily. If you use a baseboard that doesn't have that groove (or lip) you'd have to make it look neat some other way. I hope this is helpful.

5/16 in. x 5-29/32 in. x 32 in. - 8 lin. ft. MDF Overlapping Wainscot Interior Paneling Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 185.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed modification Used this in a bathroom thus I primed the remaining sides/edges with an oil based primer (two coats), then final coat of latex white paint (two coats). This extended my project time by a bit but seemed to make sense. The modification was that the bath had a tile floor and about a 4" tile "splash guard" base along the wall. I could have just whacked off the tile "splash guard" but instead I took the top rail, and it worked (as well as looks) beautiful installed, right on top of the "splash guard" so it is now the bottom base for the panels. Next I took the bottom base and circular sawed off 1" from the bottom and ran the bottom thru a table router to dress it up and viola I now have top rail! Of course this also extended my install time but it was a great re-use of existing paid for product and it looks great, if I do say so myself.

In comparing single 8ft wood panels versus this MDF paneling, I could buy 3 MDF kits for the price of 1 wood panel. The installation of the paneling is a little more time consuming, but it made it a little easier with having to work with the numerous outlets that I had along my walls. The paneling is MDF, so I am somewhat concerned with possible swelling due to moisture, with having 3 dogs and an active household, but I applied 3 coats of latex based paint to help prevent any problems with that. I used contact cement, which is probably overkill, on one section of panels. On the other wall of panels, we used finishing nails and silicone caulk. All the panels fit pretty good and there were no gaps in between each panel. I am going to purchase more kits to finish the rest of living room. Great product. Please excuse the mess in the picture, we are still remodeling the house/kitchen.

The primer was very smooth and easy to paint. I would recommend painting both sides as the panels do warp a little. I would definitely order this product again for another project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great paneling, some damage in shipment I used this paneling in a recent bathroom remodel. The chair rails got a little dinged up during shipment and split a little on the ends. I was able to cut off those piece and get the job done. Each kit arrives in an 8 ft. long skinny box and the panels and trim are unprotected inside. The box is double-layered though. The panels themselves are thick and sturdy. They come primed and I love the size as they are easy to move around and cut. They also have a good quality look. The chair rails and base trim are primed and MDF as well. I installed the base trim first with liquid nails. Some of the walls bowed so I was careful to keep the trim as straight at possible so the panels would fit in. Once the glue set I installed each panel with liquid nails then the chair rail. I used heavy long objects to hold everything in place. They painted pretty well but be careful to get the panels as close together and flush as possible. Otherwise, a gap will show between each. The end product came out great. It was much better to work with these than the big sheets. Definitely worth the extra cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit to upgrade your room. Perspective from a solo installation We are having a baby girl and my wife wanted me to paint the room and install chair rail, baseboard and wainscot, so this self contained kit is excellent. I wanted to thank all those preceding me who provided a detailed review, so this is my quid pro quo to pay it forward and help someone else reading about this product. Bad: About 10% of the wainscot panels were badly chipped and not usable (18 to a box) so like always, plan on buying more material just in case. The rails were all in good condition, no issues. Good: having a shelf in the baseboard so you can just slip the wainscot in and mount is nice feature for a single person install, and then the chair rail has a nice shelf to cap the top, making it easy. I used Liquid Nails to hold panels to the wall and just one finish nail at the top of each board to hold in place until glue dried. Be sure to place nail nearest top of panel so that it's hidden by the chair rail which fits on top of panel. Will save you from having to spackle, sand and paint all the nail holes if positioned correctly. Tools: If solo install, your best friend is a finish nail gun. I bought a used one off ebay, lithium battery (no air compressor needed so handy) 16gauge Ryobi P325. Made all the difference in being able to mount all molding and panels and quarter round by myself. Need a miter box for your corners, and a jig saw and dremel to cut the openings for your electrical outlets. Following another commenters suggestion, I painted all the pieces prior to install and this was much easier. All I had to do was touch up at the end, as opposed to painting which is tougher once all items are mounted. Pieces already primed, so this is nice. I used a good quality paint with primer and paint in one, and one coat was all that was needed. Great kit and I will use again for another room someday soon I hope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Inexpensive and adds a great look This product is a perfect addition to give a room a stylish look and depth. We've used it in our master bedroom and everyone remarks on it. It makes a difference and we love it! We didn't really need real wood wainscoting -- if we did we would've paid more and gotten real wood. This was much less expensive, easy enough for our hired handyman to install (he has the tools and the know how). It painted easily and is perfect where it is since there really won't be much traffic there. If I were to install bead board in our main hallway then I would definitely go with real hardwood since the purpose of wainscoting is actually to save walls that get high traffic and usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for the Price Yes its MDF, but only you will know. The look once finished was great. You will have to paint it both sides if you want. The miter cuts for the baseboard and rail, think before you cut you want to get this right. If not off to Home Depot or mail order for the DIY person and make sure its plumb meaning level . Sure I know its simple for the guys who do it for living and can probably get it done in one day. It took me all weekend. The baseboard is the Key get that right the rest is easy. Great home project and have Fun (well most of the time) while you do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I am not a carpenter, by any means, but I needed to finish my bathroom remodel on my own, due to a large unexpected expense. I wanted beadboard wainscoting, which is what I have in my kitchen, the real wood kind. Not being a carpenter and being afraid of sharp power tools, I first tried beadboard-look wallpaper. Despite the Amazon reviews which said it looked like the real thing, It Did Not. So, I looked around and found this MDF kit for a reasonable price, it took two kits for my tiny bathroom. I think the whole thing with baseboard and top rail was only 32 inches high, which left it hiding behind my radiator and looking dumb beside my vanity. So I made it taller by installing it further up the wall. I left in place the baseboard I had put in when the plan was wallpaper. I added a decorative bit of trim board to the top of that and then another decorative piece between that bottom layer and the bottom wainscot baseboard. With those modifications, I am pleased with how it turned out. It's MDF so it cut like butter with my Japanese pull saw. I used Loctite glue for paneling and a few strategically placed nails to hold it. I counter sunk the nails and filled in with spackle. Sometimes there would be a popping out of the MDF around the nail hole, so when that happened I sanded it down and touched up the paint, which I had to do after filling the nail hole anyway. The product comes primed, I painted it the color I wanted, front and back due to it being in a bathroom, a more moist environment. I have a little sanding a filling to do yet, which you can probably see in the photo I attached.
