Rather than replace a dated dishwasher with a new stainless model, reface it with a wood cover painted to match your cabinetry. For the look of this recessed panel design, glue and nail panel molding to ¾
-inch plywood cut to the dimensions of your dishwasher's front. Use adhesive-backed hook-and-loop tape to secure the cover.
