This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I got bugged to have no matching Furniture for a expensive Study in Game. Every object uses different Woodcolors.
So i have made recolors for the Deskclub,Colonial Dinigchair,Colonial Livingroomchair,Chesstable,Colonial Drapes,Easel and Colonial Bookcase. The match now the OakTowne's Finest Oak Wood Paneling. The Chesstable got a nice Marble inlay.(see Detailpicture) All Other Decorations in the Picture are not included.
Edit: Forgot to tell you the Grandfatherclock is also in this set. Have added Detailpic.
Edit: Uploaded Recolor of Maxis Uprightpiano and Ingamescreenshot

Oh, I love the chessboard recolour.
Too many people leave have recoloured that without changing the board itself.

This is wonderful! I've always wondered why Maxis never did this in the first place.

There's always money in the banana stand.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who hates it when everything is the wrong shade of whatever. D: Thanks for this! <3

Look everyone. A signature. <3

Very nice recolor. I love it when wood furniture matches teh woodwork of a room...otherwise it just looks a bit odd!

Great job!

I just got a new monitor, and I've suddenly noticed that none of the wood colors match! Thanks so much for easing my insanity. :oD
