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.
Update: Jan 1, 2015: I no longer have Sims 2 installed and the hard drive and backup drive with the files both died. I apologize since this means I can't offer support on my objects.

This is part of my own bedroom furniture set, the Ashley Cataline bedroom set. It is made to match my Ashley Cataline Bed Mesh.
What is it? It's an end table/nightstand. It's black/onyx with gold accents.
Constructive criticism is welcome and even requested. I tested it in my game and it seems fine except for a pink looking thing around the bottom that is only in the catalog listing. I have no idea why it has that. If this needs to be resized, moved, or whatever, please let me know.
It should only require the original Sims 2, but if you find that it requires an expansion, please let me know.
I do realize that my textures need some work. I'm still trying to get colors right with Photoshop. Hopefully I will be able to make better recolors later on.
I forgot to mention that I encourage recolors. Feel free to go crazy with this. Seeing the mesh used will make me feel good.

file: su_ashcat_endtableMESH
price: 200
room value: 4
polycount: 1188

EDIT: I realized what I did wrong that was making it look funky in the catalog. I have fixed it, as well as reduced the poly count. If you downloaded the earlier version, please download the new version.

UPDATE August 4, 2006: I'm adding 11 recolors.

The set is coming along very nicely. I went to see the pic of the actual set and I think you're doing a great job of representing it. I am hoping that you do a lapis & silver recolor of this as well ... I really like the look of that one. And are you planning on doing the entire set? I hope so and will keep a close eye out for the next pieces. You're doing an awesome job ... keep it up! Looking forward to seeing whats next from you.

I just finished making the texture for the lapis-silver one. I just need to put it into SimPE and create the recolors. My internet is being really slow today but I'm hoping I'll be able to upload after I watch Stargate:SG1 today. I also have at least one additional recolor for the bed to upload. Possibly 2 if I'm not feeling too lazy.

I am going to try to do the entire set. I may need help from more experienced object creators when it comes to the mirror part though. I may make the mirror seperate from the dresser. I'm also planning on making a version of the end table that has drawers instead of doors.

Is anyone having trouble getting this to show up in the buy menu? I was PMed and told that the dressers weren't showing up. I don't have Sims 2 loaded on my computer anymore so I can't check.
