How to make bed base?


How tO make bed base , easiest way never made anything before.

my bedroom is only small, I can take up to 4ft for width, Which I believe is a small double. The problem I am having is that the length is restricted to 5ft 5in because skirting board very thick.

is it possible to buy normal size base and alter it, or can I make one from start. I appreciate any ideas on this
