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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Okay, I finally gave in and instalied SimPE .. originally because I wanted to do something entirely different (that I'm still not finished with), but then I got distracted. This post made me realise that this dresser is actually quite a nice piece of furniture once it has a less horrible texture than what it comes with, so I thought it would be a good item to practice on .. and then I practiced, and then I practiced some more, and now I have 40 recolours if I'm counting correctly. Need to get rid of those before I'm redoing the entire catalogue! =P

This series consists of two dressers, two tables, the Molded Secional sofa from Nightlife, and a small table lamp (I can't believe this one didn't come in orange from the get-go!). They're all done in the same 7 retro colours. They're all very cheap items, so that your impoverished sims can now suffer in style. These are not bucketfill recolurs (you don't really see much of a difference on the screenshots, but in game you do), I took care to make realistic shadows and non-255255255 whites and all that. Enjoy!

You can do what you want with these, please link back to this thread if you reupload them. Please respect that I don't take requests. I'm going to upload the psd files I used in the Create section as templates -- if you want different colours you can use those. Have fun!

outstanding. I'm in the same boat with An na, I thought I'd never use them either, but you're recolor makes them not only great, but they actually remind me of something you'd get at IKEA. Thanks as always.

You and Wojtek2008 are absolutely making my morning! These look fantastic (and will fit really nicely in some of my sim-guys' bedrooms). Thanks so much.
