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.
Updated: Replaced the single bed file, many thanks to goderguy for letting me know there was a problem with the shadows...silly mistake on my part, sorry.

A gift for suzanne70.

I noticed, in a WCIF, suzanne70 was looking for a Postless Seasons Country Bed. As I was working on some recolours of the Seasons bedroom furniture recolours for her I decided to make the bed. After finishing the double bed I though I would also add the single bed.

As a bonus I also added a "fixed" recolour as well as a Default Replacement of the Maxis Country Blue, Blush and Mint Bedding.

These are not base game compatible, SEASONS is required!

Thank you! I hadn't really been using the taller posts, these will be much more useful. If we use the Default bedding, do we also add the 'fixed' file? (:

The beds are wonderful. I never noticed the flaw in bedding because I never used it; thank you for fixing it for us.

@Duine - The default replacement is all that is needed to override the original bedding. I included the fixed bedding for people who have other default replacement bedding but would like to have the country bedding as well.

Michelle, these are gorgeous! Bravo! I did notice an issue with the single bed though - there is a huge dark shadow that appears on both walls when the bed is in the corner. It's solid, and much higher than the bed itself. I meant to take a screenshot, then forgot.

@dharden - Texture Image (TXTR) > Format. It was Raw8Bit, in the drop down box I changed it to ExtRaw8Bit then clicked Commit and Save.
