I finally got around to anchoring our heavy bookcase. Our floors aren’t level, but it’s quite obvious our bookcase isn’t standing perpendicular to the floor as it’s more like the leaning bookcase of Pisa. Well, since CJ loves to climb over our couches and onto all of our chairs, we figured we need to take preemptive measures and secure our bookcase to the wall before it tips over due to CJ climbing up onto the shelves.
It took me about an hour to clear out the top two shelves to lighten the load, move the bookcase, and screw the brackets into the furniture and wall. Each bracket has two screws which makes it pretty sturdy. Hopefully it won’t need to be tested by fire.
