Well i often use the cheap counters for my legacy families and got bored seeing the maxis colors so i thought id make some that hopefully dont look as cheap as they are. There are two style a light wood and a cherry wood. I hope you like them.

*** please never upload any of my creations anywhere or claim them as your own!

Finally, cheap counters that don't look hideous! Yay!!! Maybe these are sawdust and laminate that looks like wood?
