Using the wainscoting sheeting, refacing the cabinets with wainscoting can give you an entirely new look in your kitchen. Don't toss those old cabinets, reface them. Unscrew the hinges from the cabinets and remove all the doors. Using a table saw, rip the needed size wainscoting pieces so that you can glue them to the face of the cabinetry.
