Queen bed slats offer a modern, simple look for your bedroom, as well as firm backrest. Building your own is also an economical do-it-yourself project. The following instructions use one-by-12s to build a base and one-of-4s to trim the edges of the chipboard platform. The base is inserted six inches on each side. The 1-by-4 trim creates a lip to keep your mattress from slipping and an extra half inch on each side to allow for cut sheets and other linens.
