Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This post made me realise that this dresser is actually quite a nice piece of furniture once it has a less horrible texture than what it comes with, so I made some recolours of it, and of some other items too.
This series consists of two dressers, two tables, the Molded Secional sofa from Nightlife, and a small table lamp (I can't believe this one didn't come in orange from the get-go!). They're all done in the same 7 retro colours. They're all very cheap items, so that your impoverished sims can now suffer in style. These are not bucketfill recolurs (you don't really see much of a difference on the screenshots, but in game you do), I took care to make realistic shadows and non-255255255 whites and all that. Enjoy!
These recolours come in two slightly different flavours -- one with plain aluminium (sorta) handles, and one with "striped" handles that try to match the dining table from Nightlife. I couldn't decide which one was better, so I'm simply leaving that up to you =).
You can do what you want with these, please link back to this thread if you reupload them. Please respect that I don't take requests. I'm going to upload the psd files I used in the Create section as templates -- if you want different colours you can use those. Have fun!

Thanks to Wojtek2008 for that other recolour which made me start this whole thing, and to Numenor for this idiotproof tutorial.
