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 custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

When I realized that there was absolutely nothing I could find to match the original Maxis Trottco TV stand, I decided to recolor a few things you may use in the same room as the TV.
Here's the list:
Biblo file Bookcase
Craftmeister Booknook
Cinderblock bookcase
Magazine rack with 50's Teen magazines
Cornerstone end tables
Retro end tables and coffee tables
Chess Set
Flatwoud table and chairs
Kramft value counter
JRM Entertainment Center
Candle Tray and Candles
I have some more ideas for this set so I may add some more. Hope you like it. The screen shots are in game so not all of the objects in the pics are in the set. Only wooden Items. Hope you like it.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I've always tried to make rooms with the color scheme you have going and there wasn't a good selection of Maxis items to do that, so thank you for making this set
