Alternatively, you can reinforce your boards by inserting plywood boards in the middle. If you want them to match the boards, you can stain and sand them. When the plywood is ready, place it vertically between the hanging shelf and the shelf below. Then nail the plywood into the wall at the top and bottom.
Place a block in each corner of the bookcase. Place one in front behind the face frame and one behind, right in front of the first one. The sticky side of the blocks should be flush with the sides of the case. Hit hard on the blocks in the corners.

A freestanding shelf on a thick carpet wobbles and can even tip over. The problem usually arises because the carpet is held in place by adhesives that are placed around the perimeter of the room. If you put the bookcase (or other furniture) on the ledges, it will not become level.
Stabilizing a Hanging Shelf
To mount a shelf with brackets to a wall, start with a post finder to find the studs in the wall. When you find a pin, mark its center with a vertical line with a scale and pencil. Then place the empty bookcase between the wall anchors.
How to fix hanging shelves
To reinforce assembled IKEA furniture, add extra screws along the hidden edges and add steel brackets. Drill starting holes along the hidden edges with a screw gun and drill to prevent the tree from breaking when adding screws. Insert additional wood screws into the holes you just drilled and tighten them with the screwdriver.
Put your hand on the holder and try to shake the holder. If the stand is secure, it should be stable by itself. If you find the stand wobbles or moves easily, you should probably consider another stand or anchor it to the floor with something heavy like weights.
When cut into pieces and placed under any corner of a shelf, almost all types of thin rubber mats, including bathroom mats and sinks, will help keep your furniture in place. Alternatively, similar to carpeted pillows, you can use pearl-colored cabinets and rows of drawers to prevent your shelf from sliding.
Screws are included if you choose to screw the back of the cabinet and the prongs to the wall. Installation is simple, just slide the top of the wall hook through the drywall. The ZeroScrew Furniture Anti-Tip Kit is incredibly durable when installed with glue and SecureHooks ™.
Drill the hole large enough for the screws you want to use to secure the bracket to the shelf. Replace the brackets on the shelf and line up the mounting holes with the holes. Secure the bracket to the wall by screwing the screws into the wall anchors with a socket and a ratchet.
Rest the cabinet on the screws or latch. If the cabinet is not welded, slide the spacer between the cabinet and the wall over the faucet tubes and adjust if necessary. Drill and hold two holes in each of the cabinet mounting rails and thread the 2 1/2 inch cabinet screws through the holes.
Lower the hooked shelf to a horizontal position, slide the end bracket into place and mark the screw holes. Keeping the shelf free, drill a hole at each mark and insert the plastic plugs. Fix the bracket in the dowels with the screws and lower the shelf.
