    Could you Make bigger, beefier shelving for that big wall?

      Of course, simply purchase thicker boards, heavy duty bracing and corresponding hardware for your project. Ensure you mount to studs in the walls for optimum weight support. Depending on the weight factor alone, hollow wall anchors may not be enough and may fail.
