Back of kitchen L counter cabinets- need help!

Help please!

This house was built in 1980s and had this awful drop counter. I removed the counter today and now have this expected aged and irregular area. I am afraid that sanding and staining wont bring it back to level with the rest and am not super confident in my polyurethane skills. Any ideas for how to cover this up and still keep kitchen semi cohesive?
