People are using Wayne’s Coating instead of wainscotting.
Nice Lehmann’s terms. I just wanted to affix the acorns wainscot and wainscoting, the more familiar spelling. Wayne’s coat has been applied more than 1000 times on the web, Wayne’s coating is twice as popular. Wayne’s cot is a googledeuce.
Not to mention panelling designed by Wayne Scott.
