Wainscotting between existing molding and chair rail


Can wainscotting be installed between existing chair rail and molding? Photo for reference. If it's possible I'd like to not rip either out.

If it's not can I rip out just the molding and keep the rail?

I'm trying to do this myself so any tips that will help save me time, heartache, and $ would be very helpful.

You could if you used thin paneling and made your cuts perfect. Another option would be a faux wainscotting where you take molding and build 'boxes' below the chair rail. Most use base cap to make the 'box' frame.

You may want to replace your base with something a little more prominent to match the proportion though. Example pic
