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.
Bits and bobs from the IKEA FREDRIK desk to make wall shelves. It has the same amount of slots as the original BV one, shifts up/down on the wall if you have AL, and is slaved to the IKEA FREDRIK desk.

Found in Surfaces/Shelves for §125. Has two subsets (just like the desk), the frame and the shelves.

Polygon Counts:
Exactly 500 polys

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Even just the fact that the shelf adjusts up and down the wall is a huge plus. The BV shelf is fixed on height and that makes it a lot clumsier to use though it looks nice. I like the clean lines and the wooden shelf and that it matches a desk as well. I will be watching for others to recolor it as you suggest. Thanks!

Wonderful work! I always dreamed of more versatile souvenir shelf.
By the way, does it function like BV original so souvenirs put there will affect sims' life?

excellent; there's no such thing as too many IKEA addons!

I've got weird blue issues with this shelf. Pretty sure the issue is on my end as I just installed on a new laptop using Windows 10 for the first time and I've got a few other issues, but it's a lovely shelf and I'd like to figure out how to get it to display properly.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

Thanks for the reply, HL. I had assumed my IKEA was not properly installed because none of my IKEA stuff is showing up correctly, but when I pulled my entire Sims 2 folder when trying to track down a crashing issue, all the IKEA stuff all seemed to be showing up fine. So I think maybe it's actually installed correctly but that something in my Downloads is (somehow) screwing it up. I haven't done a full 50/50 yet, but I'll get around to it one of these days and I assume the shelf should work once I get the IKEA stuff working correctly.

Just updating that as it turns out IKEA was in fact improperly installed but I got it fixed this evening and your shelf is now showing up perfectly as well. It looks great!
