Today I bring you 23 recolours of Maxis' "Tieback Curtains".
I really like the colours of my embossed wallpapers with matching carpets so I decided to make matching curtains. I only did one red shade though, because the original colour suits my wallpapers well too.

Have fun & enjoy!

Thank you so much for these! They're incredible!
I always loved the maxis curtains but never really used them because of the colors. Now not only can I have them in tame colors, but there are sooo many choices! These are going to go up on all of my sims' windows.

Thank you thank you thank you! I've been meaning to make recolors of this curtain for my game but always put it off. Now I don't have to! Really, it is a nice mesh and looks great... shame Maxis released it in such tacky colors!

I was just thinking that I needed to do a few green recolors of these to go with a house I'm building and here they were when I logged in. Thanks for saving me a lot of time.

ekrubynaffit: Yes, these colours also work for the single-tile short tieback curtain and the double-wide version.

Thanks everyone!

Don't worry, you didn't just "miss" the picture before. I added it so people wouldn't have to ask.

These curtains were always my favourites - I used them even with the lack of colours - now I have lots of colours!!! That's so great.

Mostly I fix Gameplay annoyances. I take requests and have made a few Requested mods already. Visit me on MTS Yearbook

AH! I was always bugged by the stinginess of Maxis when providing recolors for these pretty awesome curtains... so thanks!

Nice looking recolours, it was hard to mix and match with the limited colours available, not so bad now, thanks for all the hard work
