Thank you, Michelle
I was just using the St. Ajoque bed last night, and was appalled by the recolors I've collected for it - I deleted them all.
Now I can use this bed again. YAY!

It's cool, but I have a kind question to you: could you consider recolouring objects from Castaway too? I use some base game-compatible custom content in Castaway and it works perfectly, but I'm bored to death with those green, grey and yellow bamboo textures all the time. I want to make the island appear more civilised, more like a postcolonial territory, for instance there is a bookshelf that looks like a weathered IKEA bookshelf. I am 90% sure it's the IKEA mesh. Seeing recolours that make the furniture and so on look as if it was washed ashore the island (but not after hundreds of years as it's shown in Castaway :P), it would be perfect. I'm waiting to hear from you :D.

@ Arlesienne, I don't have castaway sorry, I'll head to eBay and see if I can get it, if I do get it I'll take a look and see what I can do for you.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their on it.

Just wanted to let you know I snagged most of your uploads and I really love them :) This was a much needed project - not an overwhelming amount of similar recolors but a nice, neat pack of just the right ones, especially the white and black! Thanks :D
