This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Why have I done this to myself?! Two and a half days of doing NOTHING BUT THIS SET! After all, I have no job, car, or school....but that's beside the point. I've worked hard on this, and hope that everyone enjoys it.

I was inspired by, of all things, a three-ring binder I got during locker cleanout four years ago at high school. I kept it then for its design, not having a clue if I'd ever get to use it, but sure enough, I finally figured something out! Then I gave it more colors than just the blue one, because that would be boring.

Recolored in this set:
Sanitation Station Baby Changing Table
The Kinder Kontainer
The Kinder Koddler
3x4 Floor Rug by Echo (also for the 2x3 Floor Rug by Windkeeper/Echo)
Social Climbing Ivy Floor Lamp--will also recolor Social Climbing Ivy Table Lamp
Tinkle Trainer 6000
"Founding Fathers" Electric Lamp
Groovy Dresser by Keen Co.--university required
Ultra Funky Curtain Clothes--will recolor Loft Curtains by Sparse and Fine
Here and There Thing

It doesn't seem like that many objects, but when you consider there's eight recolors for each, and it took my computer fifteen minutes to load some of them in Wizards of SimPE (and an hour for the ones I had to do in actual SimPE), plus a couple of items I'm not including (yet)...yeesh! I've tormented myself! Plus I wanted to make sure that BaseGame people could use it (I didn't find a dresser I liked in base so that's University, but everything else is good), so I had to do a bit of research to figure out what was what. And then I went and used Echo's 3x4 Rug mesh.

The dressers are available in all the colors and combos in the patterns shown, but I couldn't think of a more efficient way to show that.

Great for twins, quads (with a number of cheats), or (God save you) octuplets (since I can think of a way to do that). Enjoy!

Yeah, I would have done that, but it would exceed the 10Mb limit. Sorry.
