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 is just one object, but I couldn't wait to share it with you all. It's a closet! Not a dresser, a closet (that works like a dresser). If you are a fan of making homes that are realistic and you have tons of closets that are housing a dresser or are just wasted space, here's the item for you. The clothingrack is one tile deep and two tiles wide. The original Maxis "Anti-Quaint-Ed" Ltd. Ed. Armoire and the original Maxis OakTowne Simple Interior Door was used to create this mesh.

The base mesh is in white. Feel free to recolor and distribute as long as you give me credit and link back to my page for the mesh (since it's free). (

I'd also like to thank Mage at Simmage for helping me get the animations working correctly.

And if I've forgotten anyone or misspelled any names, please forgive this old lady for her senior moment.

I really love having a build in closet, and I can't wait to try it out- the only problem is I can't *find* it in game. I downloaded it several times and replaced it, but I don't see it in my catalog. Does anyone know if it's in with the other dressers?

I don't remember downloading this item, but it ended up in my files and I LOVE it!!! I must have inadvertently gotten it with some house download. What a lucky thing for me.

This is my most favorite thing to use in building my sims homes! It's fantastic, looks great in the game and is SO much better than using a dresser.

I LOVE this closet, thanks so much for making/sharing it!

I can't seem to get it to line up properly with the wall... I have moveobjects on and everything...

This is awesome! Well-Dressed Sim (way back when they used to be a free site) had something like this for TS1. I've been waiting for someone to do one for TS2. I build my houses from actual home floor plans, and I had a double door that worked okay for closets, but this is way better!

Any chance you'll do the same recolors for this that you have for your single version?

It does show up with the other dressers, and also in miscellaneous.

It's not a door, so make sure there's only 3 walls-1 tile on each side, and 2 tiles across the back. It should be recessed.

Your closets are wonderful, Marmy! I think you should work for Maxis/EA, because you're the smart one who made them first. Thank you!
