FYI - I made mine by ripping down strips from some old 2x4s I had in my garage. You could do it for less work by buying 1x2s.
I did put 2 screws in the one vertical wood piece, to keep it from sliding around.
But otherwise the weight is all transferred to the floor.
(the "bed side" of the closet is nothing more than some 1/8" panelling, so there is no way to put a screw into it)
