Used this in my bathroom as an alternative to having to move the toilet to paint the full walls. Way easier than messing with the plumbing and actually ended up adding more character to the room. Measured the room and got the pieces cut at home depot so they'd fit in the car.
I used liquid nails (the one for paneling) and some white finishing nails and had an easy time of it. Cut easily with a Ryobi circular saw and jigsaw for a better fit once I was home.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Stylish

I bought these panels to finish a room in my basement. The ceiling is low, so I had to cut each panel to size, plus holes for outlets and such. I found the panels reasonably easy to handle and cut. They've been up for about a month now (nailed directly to the studs) and there is no sign of warping.
Pros: Easy to Work With, Economical

We used a ton of this on the inside of our lake cottage. It is unheated in the winter, in a damp location, and this stuff has been great! It has held up well, going on its tenth year now. Cleans up really well, and the winter dampness has not seemed to affect it at all. It is rock-solid. It was pricier than I wanted, but well-worth it in the long run, and easy to cut. Hard to nail in though!

Love this product, remodeling an old house and used this in the bathroom. You can give it a country look or sophisticated look. Again I love it

Turn an old home into a work of art

My son and I moved into a one hundred year old home at the end of October. It had not been well taken care of. The existing walls and ceilings were brown from years of smokers. Irresponsible previous tenants had left evidence of their bad lifestyle behind. IT WAS A DUMP. I even had people advise me not to move in, it was so bad. They did not see the potential I did. Many of the rooms were easy to fix. Some old cans of paint in the shed worked just fine to give 3 rooms their own makeover. Ample good condition carpet rolls, also left in the shed, covered the old linoleum in 1 room and the unfinished bathroom floor. A good cleaning helped a lot, too. However, when I got to the living room, I was stuck. One wall was bare of the more than 6 layers of old wallpaper that unevenly covered the other walls. the old i" wooden slats showed behind the old paper. There were cracks which leaked the outside cold air indoors. I knew adding another layer of wallpaper wouldn't be a good thing. I thought of placing plywood over the existing and painting or papering it. I just didn't want to add new over old. I couldn't remove the layers and paint the slatted boards because of the cracks. AND, I wanted a room that was classy, stylish, and practical.
I did research on HOME DEPOT'S website. I really liked the white pine panels, but once I figured up the cost to do the whole room, I knew it was much more than I could afford to spend. At the same time, I would have rather spent out of my budget than go with something that did not suite my taste.
A friend suggested the WHITE WAINSCOT PANELING. Wow! What a blessing. It looked good and was within my budget needs.
I bought several sheets of WHITE WAINSCOT PANELING. They were so EASY TO INSTALL. First, I painted the dark ceiling white. Then, I ripped off the numerous layers of old wallpaper and cleaned the areas of wood underneath that had developed mold. A FEW MEASUREMENTS, a skill saw, 2 saw horses, and 2 DAYS later (and some GOOD FAMILY) and I had a whole new living room! IT IS AMAZING! Guests cannot believe the difference. It is my FAVORITE in the house and my son likes it, too. He is not ashamed of where he lives now. I feel like I am now living in a home that, with a few more minor repairs, I can actually stay in, feel comfortable, and be happy.
I am so thankful to HOME DEPOT for carrying products that are economical and quality. The SERVICE professionals were EXCELLENT, as well, every time I called with a question and when I bought the products in the store.
I RECOMMEND THE WHITE WAINSCOT PANELING FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO UPGRADE A ROOM ON A BUDGET. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! THANK YOU HOME DEPOT.

This product is very flismsy and light weight. I was impressed the corners did not break off. Very attractive. I installed in the stair hall of our cabin. I do not feel this product would be durable enough for room application. I am impressed how easy it is to paint, and the drying time quick.

No, I do not recommend this product.
The package looks good - on the outside - the product inside is junk! We needed 48sq foot - the pack does 14 so we bought 4 packs - good thing because there are only 7 pieces per pack & at least 2 were unusable! The ends 2-3 ft worth were rotten! If they are going to specify the sq ft per pack - more product should be included in pack to reach promised amount!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Light Weight
Cons: Inconsistent, alot of unusable pieces, does not cover promised square footage
