Another Apartment Life recolour, both residential and apartment mail boxes as well as the trash can to match my other AL Wood recolours. Many thanks to amythestfenix for the 3 extra wood colours.

This is not a buyable object it's recolours of the game 'Mailboxes' and 'Trash Can', you'll need Apartment Life to use both mailbox recolours. The Mailbox recolours both residential and apartment mailboxes.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: Plants by macarossi, Recolourable Breadfruit Tree by HeartDeco recolours by me.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour chart is included in the zip file.

Thanks for all your creations! Also a question about this one. Since it's not buyable, do we put one color in and all mail and trash will be the same or do we put them all in and use the color chooser in build mode?

Can't believe I'm just now stumbling onto these. Thank you, I really like the way the wood looks on the apartment mailbox. Helps class it up a bit!
