This bed was sent to me with no hardware, so I had to wait a week or two before building it while replacement parts came. That gave me time to buy new slats! The slats that come with this bed are like 2 inches wide, and you only get three of them. Three two inch slats to support a whole queen mattress and potentially two full grown adults?? Crazy. I went out and bought eight 60-inch planks and drilled them down for some real support. Now that the bed is built, new slats and all - it's gorgeous and very solid. Looks like I spent twice as much on it! And my queen Tempur mattress fits perfectly. So my advice if you're vacillating on purchasing it: go ahead and buy! But be careful with what hardware you may or may not receive, and DEFINITELY go out and buy some cheap lumber for the base.
