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.

This post made me realise that this dresser is actually quite a nice piece of furniture once it has a less horrible texture than what it comes with, so I made some recolours of it, and of some other items too.

This series consists of two dressers, two tables, the Molded Secional sofa from Nightlife, and a small table lamp (I can't believe this one didn't come in orange from the get-go!). They're all done in the same 7 retro colours. They're all very cheap items, so that your impoverished sims can now suffer in style. These are not bucketfill recolurs (you don't really see much of a difference on the screenshots, but in game you do), I took care to make realistic shadows and non-255255255 whites and all that. Enjoy!

These recolours come in two slightly different flavours -- one with plain aluminium (sorta) handles, and one with "striped" handles that try to match the dining table from Nightlife. I couldn't decide which one was better, so I'm simply leaving that up to you =).

You can do what you want with these, please link back to this thread if you reupload them. Please respect that I don't take requests. I'm going to upload the psd files I used in the Create section as templates -- if you want different colours you can use those. Have fun!

Hey, these are lucky days for me, I wished to find the right inspiration for a long session of SimPE and recoloring but you and Wojtek2008 saved me! These recolors go wonderfully also with some of FreeTime and Kitchen&Bath colors.
It's a very useful and lovely project, actually there are many maxis objects never used due to their weird colors ...
Thanks forever and ciao :D

Wow, thank you. I had to use the orginal coloured ones today and I had to pick the least hideous colour. These are amazing, thank you.
