I don't know about you, but when I spill paint, I clean it up. Why shouldn't sims do the same? This set of recolors is for that artistic yet finicky type sim who want to fingerpaint at night and not have the paint get on their business proposal paper the next day. For the even more organized sim, we have *gasp* matching furniture! Yes, your chair can now match your desk! Please, stay calm. I know it's a big change. I also added a more redwood recolor to the set for those who want something a little more classy.

Another thing I added in addition to the new clean woods is a see-through recolor of the storage drawers. I didn't even notice it until I recolored this set, but there are actual art supplies hiding in there! Your sims may not be able to reach them, but at least now they can admire the contents within!

There are two versions of the light wood desk: One with paint on the palette and one without. I also created a new paint splotch texture for the palette because the other palette looked like someone had vomited on it, to be perfectly frank. I know palettes are often used for mixing paint, but I prefer paints that haven't blended together on the palette.

Included are recolors of "Broken-In" Desk by Imad Ethis, "Outside the Box" Chair by Imad Ethis, and "Potential" Sculpture by Imad Ethis. I think I have a bone to pick with Mr. Ethis after this...

As usual, if you have any problems with the content of the upload, alert me right away! That way I can freak out and flail about until I manage to solve the issue, thus saving everyone a major headache. Most importantly of all: Enjoy your squeaky clean new furniture!

Additional Credits:
Thank you to the SimPE people as usual! Floors are by Maxis. The wallpaper is by Maxis as well, but it's an extracted Sims 1 wallpaper by KHLVH. Grafitti on the wall is made by Aviolina at GOS. I once again want to thank Maxis and Imad Ethis, who's confusing decisions led me to fix up this set. (Really, I must figure out what they were thinking when they made this!)
