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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This bed is quite different from any of the others I've done, thought I'd try something a little funky, this one is supported only by it's connection to the large headboard. The matching side table is oversized so it will appear to be connected to the bed. This can be a problem if the left or right side of the table is placed in a corner, it will go though the wall.

Because I used the colonial end/coffee table as the base for the side table, the new one will be found in the catalog under Coffee Tables.

For some reason, maybe the room lighting, the photo is showing the headboard as a different color, however it is the same as the rest of the bed.

Both are new meshes created by me, and are free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, this mesh MUST remain a free download, or post a link to a free download.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

I would like someone without University to let me know if they work.

Enjoy, Kathy

I love the "built in" endtables, and this is the first bed I've seen with them (I have to try and limit my downloading, so this is the only one I'll need, at any rate.)

Thank you!

(Oh, and I don't have Uni...am I the only one left?? I'll let you know what happens.)
