Cabinet Bowing

There is an electrical outlet (120 Volt AC) on the other side of this cabinet facing. The staples will not hold any longer. I think that pushing plugs back and forth caused this.

Anyone fixed this before? Wondering how to do so that end result looks good.

Thanks.

I haven't had that particular piece come loose, but have fixed similar with 1/4" crown staples (short ones) and matching putty. There should be a strip of wood where that panel is bowed out. If your curious about wires, you can pull the recepticle on the other side of that and see a little in there, or use a bore scope to look in the wall. Lots of wires.

I am thinking that I need to have something that reinforces the area so that it does not continue to bow out. My sons plug their electronic devices into the receptacle on the other side to charge. As teenagers they just shove as hard as they can. I am afraid that if I staple/glue then that thin piece will simply break.

That panel seems excessively flimsy to me. I kind of anticipated other folks having run into the problem already and corrected - maybe I am first.

I was thinking of a layer of similar veneer, stained as close as I could match, and a series of screws with ferrules on the one inch stock that runs vertical on each side.
