This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
All base game kitchen counters, islands and commercial counters in AL wood colours. Now for a twist 3 extra colours added, many thanks to amythestfenix for the colours.

Commercial counters can be found in Buy Mode > Community Sort > Shopping > Surfaces.
Old Boys Club Commercial Counter - §710, Chiclettina "Fjord" Commercial Counter - §750 & CounterRevolution Commercial Counter - §750.

All kitchen counters and islands have a clean and a dirty state.

Just what I've been looking for, thanks. So often I just want plain black or white kitchen benches, and Maxis options were dismal.
