Odd shaped Pantry Shelving? Hejne to the rescue

I was unable to find suitable adjustable wall mounted pantry shelving for my odd shaped space.

I realized the HEJNE shelving could be ‘inverted’, if you will, from outside to inside support.

Basically the posts are fixed to the wall of the pantry. Shelves are adjustable and support is perpendicular to the IKEA plan.

IKEA items used:
  • HEJNE shelving system
Other materials:

Here’s how I made my custom pantry shelving

Measurements for my pantry, which meant shelves would need to be narrower on the inside.

First, I laid the posts where I wanted to fix them. I anchored screw locations in between the shelves and mounted the posts to the walls.

Dowels were installed at shelf locations to support the shelving units.

Next I needed to cut the pantry shelving units to fit my odd shaped space.

To do that I had to cut the planks at an angle. Then, removed the end rails and re-attached to the planks on the end unit.

Delicate work to get the remnant plank from the end rail … I used a chisel to split them and then pull away.

End rail reattached to the planks.

Odd shaped pantry shelves all done.

The last step is to just place the pantry shelving onto the dowels in the side units.

And it’s ready to get filled up.
