SF Good Questions: Queen Mattress on a King Frame?

Pin it button big

AT:SF,

I have a queen-sized mattress from DWR that I love & have no plan to get rid of it. There is someone on Craigslist selling a platform bed that DWR used to sell that is made from solid walnut w/a matching slanted & very tall vertical headboard (used to be called the Blu Notte). The seller is letting it go for $1,500 & I think they must have paid around $4-$5K for it.

My question is for the sake of a good deal, has anyone at your end used a queen mattress on a king-sized frame with good results & I imagine approx. 8 inches of frame material protruding from the sides, or is it just a ridiculous stretch?

Thanks for your time,
Michael

Anyone?
