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 MTS - check below the description for more information.
ETA: WOW! Wawa has made some incredible add on pieces to match this bed, 18 in all, as well as some recolours. You can find them HERE. My recolours will also work with Wawa's add on pieces.

Requested by greyjaybug.

After I upload the Federal Double Bed greyjaybug asked if I could make it without the headboard padding, so here it is. Known fault the wood bleeds into the bedding on the bottom corners of the bed.

Once again I have included 2 meshes, however, as they both have the same GUID's you can only have 1 MESH in your game at a time, the recolours work with both MESHES. (once again I've never done this before so if you find anything wrong please let me know.)
