This kit is a good product. Easy instructions, easy to install, looks great when finished. I had this delivered to our home and it arrived with no freight damage; the packaging was well done.

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.

Love the chair rail and baseboard were included and that the panels fit into the grooves for the rail and baseboard. Looks awesome and was easy to install

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by owner looks good in a new bathroom
Very easy to install this MDF even in a room that was not too square. It looks really nice in a bathroom or kitchen if you want a vintage look. Primed and easily paintable also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dmel Good quality kit
Purchased 40 linear feet of this product for our nursery. It came more quickly than promised and in good condition. A couple of the ends of the baseboard needed to be trimmed off due to blemishes in manufacturing. It took two coats of paint to make them look good. They installed easily and look great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hphlee Looks great
Came out fantastic and was not hard to install. Like some other reviews mentioned, there were several boards that had marks and weren't usable.
Would recommend since it really looks great in our bathroom
