New Meshes: "Rustic Collection" Paintings

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.
I present my newest collection of painting meshes for your enjoyment. They were inspired by "This Olde Cabin" that came with the Bon Voyage expansion; however, the meshes don't require an expansion just the original game.

I made the frame of the meshes to match the old wood used for "This Olde Cabin" but I've also included one wood frame recolour that's more modern yet still keeps the rustic feel of the paintings. I've created 6 other frame recolours that I'll be posting in another thread so that you can mix and match paintings throughout your Sim's home. Hope you like them.

I've posted each mesh separately so you need only download the one your interested in.

Presenting "Rustic Square" - 2-tile painting, $1150, room rating 6:

"Rustic Oblong" - another 2-tile painting, $1350, room rating 6:

"Rustic Division" - one-tile painting, $950, room rating 6:

I'll probably make more shapes and sizes for this collection and I definitely would like to create a mirror to match. If you have any suggestions or requests, let me know.


As with all my objects, they work in my game but please let me know if you have any problems with them.

Feel free to make and post recolours on MTS2 and other free sites but please don't post the mesh - just link to this thread. I also don't mind if you include them with lots. Please do NOT post on pay sites.

Polygon Counts:
Each mesh has the following counts:

Face Count: 288
Vertex Count: 425

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

Oh my I love the frames and the antique darken looking ones match your counters so well.
Every photo is to be admired and I wish they were going in my own home instead of my Simmie's.
Thank You!!

Thanks. The bathroom objects came with the Seasons expansion.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
