Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJG 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cherahj 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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA 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.
