I came across this on Pinterest, but cannot find the link to the original article. I would love to connect two KALLAX shelving units as they did in the photo below. Does anyone have any thoughts on how it was done?
Many thanks for your help!

How to connect two KALLAX units together
Rui’s method helps to connect two or more KALLAX shelving units together. His hack doesn’t get rid of the thicker side panels where the units are joined, as per the inspo photo above. If anyone has any ideas on how that’s done, do drop us a comment. ~ Jules
I had two KALLAX 2×2 units and wanted a longer shelving unit in my space. So I decided to join two of them together.
Yes, IKEA sells a 2×4 KALLAX unit but I already had these two units. Repurposing them was better than throwing them out and getting a new one.
Besides, if you ever need a longer set of KALLAX shelves, for instance, joining a 2×4 with a 2×2, you can do it this way too.
