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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Inge of Simlogical has made some excellent new Shelfbeds. They stack up to three high, without moveobjects, and fill three tiles so they can be built into an alcove. The rustic ones are designed for use in gyspy caravans, cabins and cottages.

There are both double and single beds, with recolours slaved to the single mesh. I believe they work with Pets and above. I tested them in a game up to Freetime. Inge would love you to tell her if you are using them with EPs earlier than Freetime.

You might also like to try Inge's new hack allowing sims to use inaccessible beds - works brilliantly with these bunks, so you can make better use of tiny living spaces. Tha animations are odd, but it does work.

I've made seven wood recolours, some more rustic than others. Only the single is shown, the recolours work for both sizes.

The pink one matches the Seasons country furnishings. Several of the others were made to match the Craftmeister bookcase, and there is one with flaking paint which matches the distressed cheap kitchen by Dee, available from N99.

Please visit Simlogical to get the mesh. And have fun caravanning!

Note - Ingeli of Windlebridge has also recoloured these beds. Check out her versions here:

Inge of course, for making the beds, and encouraging me to learn to recolour.
