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.
This is a new mesh of Easel. This object takes 1 floor tile only when default easel takes 2 floor tiles. It could be recolored or re-textured. This easel doesn't override base game easel. It has the same functionality (no modifications).

You can find it in buy mode - (hobby) category.
It costs §120.
Fun 2
+ painting

In this topic you will download only mesh.
On the pictures are game footage of painting (small, medium and large paintings) and a recolor sample.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Finally. I disliked that the ea easel took up 2 tiles, compared with the one tile of sims 2!

My username here is sweetichigodream, but I am better known as Helena and/or Funny Bunny! :) would love to change username...

Great! I hated how the one that comes with the game takes 2 tiles! It's so big!

This is very useful, thank you for sharing!

Thanks! I thought the easel was too big before myself, so this is a nice save.
