@sartarehare Thanks for the ideas. The Ikea shelves turned out to basically just be filled with corrugated cardboard - so it wasn't just that they pulled out of the wall. They actually broke - the edges came apart, etc. (see photo). I think paint quality wood or mdf or the like would be more secure, along with extra anchors.

Unfortunately, while I think he could install with extra anchors, etc, I don't think he is up to actually engineering it from scratch DIY.

@ luckylyn5- lag bolts are the most secure way if you can locate the studs. Go to your lumberyard or hardwoods supply and ask for poplar. It's lightweight and easy to sand and paint. Then predrill the boards so you are sure that the exit part of the long lag bolt winds up where the stud is. I just finished our laundry room shelves using that approach. I used fir instead, which is denser than poplar but I have a bunch of it from a prior project.
