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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This narrow shelf has 9 decorative slots, which means that it will hold nine objects, or make it a lot easier to position fewer objects. (The slots are not positioned perfectly evenly, as I thought that would just look unrealistic.)
It requires AL as it is repository to the KnockOnWood Medium Shelf that comes with that EP. It will shift up/down.
You can use the M button to cycle through the slots when placing an object (this function might require OfB).
The zip also includes some recolours for the original shelf: a blue with invisible brackets, a red one, three glass ones, plus two separate recolours (white and grey) for the brackets only).
With particular thanks to HugeLunatic for her tutorial on slots.

Thanks a lot! I love cluttering my simhouses (like my own house ).
Where did you find all the cool bottles and make-up?

Wonderful! Just what is needed for small rooms where wide shelves take all of the space.

THANK YOU for this!! I love small shelves (because honestly, how often do you have shelves IRL that are as wide as a counter?) and I'm addicted to clutter, so this is perfect for me!

I squeed so hard my head exploded. Now my sims can have a kitchen spice rack, a garden shed tool shelf, a mini teddy bear collection... Must reinstall the game!

This is a wonderful idea for cluttering up the house a little or just to use as a handy slim shelving unit. Thank you very much for sharing.

Hi.. thanks for your mini shlef. But I'm just wondering where did you get the clutters? The nail polish, make up, perfume? If you can tell me, I will appreciate it very much. THANK YOU!

Wow; this is really convenient. Thank you! Um... not to bother you with WCIF's, but what bottles are those? They're really nice and I don't think I've seen them before.
Once again, thanks!
