I never thought I would have to write a bad review for any Walmart product. Generally, if something doesn't live up to expectations, the price is so low that it doesn't matter. However, this is a pricier item than I usually buy from Walmart and I have to speak out this time. I still can't complain about the price though--you really can't get a queen size bedframe any less expensive! I purposely wanted this one because it has the stem glides instead of wheels, because I hated our old frame moving around on the hardwood everytime we sat on the bed or bumped it. First, I had this shipped site-to-store and had to return it before I even left the parking lot, it didn't fit in my car. So I ordered it again, coughed up the extra $22, and got it shipped to my home. The frame itself was easy to hook and snap everything together. It took us more time to make sure all of the screw-on legs were even with each other--at least 20-30 minutes just for that. We have hardwood floors so there's no cushioning if something is even a little uneven. Like many other people said, I did have a few extra inches of frame at the foot of the bed, but after a day or two, I avoided it with my legs without thinking about it, no bruises. Now, here is the bad news. I am a big girl, but even between myself and my husband, it is still less than 600 lbs. A bedframe should be able to hold that much weight easily, so I don't know if it was because of weight, the stem glides sliding around on the hardwood, the middle beam not quite steady, or what, but within less than a week, two of the legs bent and that corner of the bed went crashing down, and there was no way to fix it. I couldn't even return the frame to Walmart because I already knew it wouldn't fit in my car! I am completely out all of the time, frustration, and money I spent on this frame with absolutely no consolation. We now just have the mattress and boxspring on the floor and I'm just too tired of dealing with it to look somewhere else for a different frame.
