I wanted different colors for the wood and metal bits for the hobby plaques that come with Freetime, so I've made them recolorable. They have two subsets, the wood and the metal, and the wood is repositoried so only one recolor will be needed for the wood subset. Each hobby plaque will have to be recolored individually for the metal subset.

This CEP-Extra will not interfere with any defaults you have as it does not alter any of the same resources.

This item may only be available in Object Workshop to recolor if you have Buyable Hobby Plaques

*To recolor the wood, choose the Arts & Crafts Hobby Plaque, located in Decorative/Wall -- This will then recolor the wood for ALL hobby plaques.
*To recolor the metal, choose each individual plaque, located in Decorative/Wall -- See Image

AL version
If you have AL and use the Sweet Down Low meshes and use the AL version of this mod, the meshes will "jump" to random heights when you install this mod. --see image cep-hobby-plaque-2.jpg -- You can simply shift these as normal.
