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.

So excited! I've always thought my paintings would look a lot better framed--never thought I'd get my wish. Thanks!

I've already got some frames but they are a bit boring - these are really nice!! - I think the border is particularly a big plus!!

Waiting for Sims4 so I can go all Halliwell again!!

Thanks! I will say they don't work great if you put them both in a corner. Frames are too thick for that, but I had to make a choice "nice frames" or "corners" and I chose the first one

Thank you so much for these! Some of my sims paint beautiful works of art and it's sad that their paintings must go unframed. =)

Considering that is a paysite, the mesh should be included. If not, I will report you for uploading paysite links.

It is. Why don't you check the file before throwing around accusations.

Hey, you guys got to show me pics of your houses with paintings. Send me a PM if you post them up somewhere.

I really love this..the frame looks so wonderful in the game!
I have a problem though...only one frame shows up in my game! I've uninstalled and reinstalled the download but Im still only getting one! It says there are 31 frames in your post, am I misinterpreting it?
Thanks again

I recently cleaned out my entire download folder and had to reinstall all my cc. I'm glad I was able to find these beautiful frames again!

But not any more! Thanks!

By the way, you can actually frame the paintings your sims make without any downloads. You just click on them, and it says "Frame..." then you choose out of different colours and styles. And, i know that there's more variety here, but i'm just letting you know.

I was just about to start doing this.. but I'm totally relieved to see that you already have! Thanks so much! ...would be INCREDIBLY cool if there could be a reflective glass layer on top of the piece too... just a thought

Such a great idea! This gives the paintings a much, much more "finished" look. Thank you!

This is awesome. I'm surprised that it doesn't have more downloads. Definetly deserves it.
