This is how I made a low-profile bed frame cheaply from wood slats.

We want our mattress low to the ground so if our daughter ever falls out of bed, she doesn’t have far to go. We learned the trick of putting the family bed on the ground from Christy’s parents, and wanted to give it a try. However, the floor in our bedroom is uninsulated, and putting a mattress directly against a cold floor is a great way to grow mold. This frame raises the mattress 1.5 inches; just enough to ensure airflow.
