Easy. A frame of 2x8 framing lumber and two sheets of plywood. Head board of 1x6 lumber and 2x4's.

Lots of people do this on youtube, it looks great and some people put LEDs under the edge to make it appear to float even more. I would worry about bashing my shins but they you are probably a bit more energetic than me.

Visually: pick lumber size for frame ( 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, etc for height off floor) affix some of same boards inside the outside frame (# depends on your weight (maybe 2 or 3), and the thickness of the plywood), assemble frame with long screws, and acquire plywood (for easy handling 3 or 4 smaller pieces) and screw down (for easy disassembly to move) plywood. SAND and paint or stain everything before assembly. Attach (or not) headboard plywood.
