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.

Some more variety for the bistro set that came with Seasons!

Includes 18 tabletop recolors for the "Table de Bistro by Bourgeois Design":

- 2 glass textures in 5 colors each: a textured glass and a matte frosted glass in blue, green, white, gold and grey.

- 8 metal textures with a cutout pattern: 4 matching Maxis' colors for the frame, and 4 matching shastakiss' yeti metal recolors of the frame.

You will also need her CEP-extra for these recolors to be available for the matching chair (shasta_CEP_ssns_bistrotablechair)

Known issue with the metal recolors:

Catalog Info:

Thank you! I've wanted recolors like these for a long time. With how often I see similar sets in grocery stores in my region, I'm surprised I haven't found a set like this before. They're beautiful!

Lovely, I especially like the glass.

I am currently 'yeti'ing and pirate wood'ing everything. @shastakiss I think I literally downloaded a hundred files of yours off Sims2artists. Thanks.

I love the stone, but this will fit my poor Sims' homes without sticking out when they have money, but I still try to make them look poor!
