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.
The cabinet was originally requested by Christobal at Black Pearl Sims. The rest of the set was knocking around in my mind, just begging to be made. Since I know me and just how annoying I can be, I decided the rest of the set needed to be made.

What You Get:
A cabinet - with 23 slots
A sideboard - with 8 slots
A cupboard - with 8 slots
A shelf - with 3 slots
18 recolors of the cabinet (17 Maxis woods and 1 glass recolor - shown in a screenshot, I wanted to have the shelf match the cabinet's shelves)

What You Need To Know:
The CABINET is the MASTER of the set. You *must* have that file in your game for the others to work.
The shelf can be shifted if you have Apartment Life. It's positioned to be at the same height as the shelf/shelves in the cabinet. Shifting up 4 times will put it at the height of the next shelf.
If you DO NOT have Apartment Life - the shelf will only be in 1 position, which is the same height as the last shelf of the cabinet.
These meshes are 1-tile wide, so if you put them next to a wall they will be eaten slightly by the wall. (This is why there are no east and west shadows!)

IN CASE YOU ALREADY HAVE THE CABINET MESH FROM MY TUMBLR OR BPS: The cabinet in this download is the same mesh BUT it is a little narrower to make putting them side-by-side more seamless. You can just let the new mesh overwrite the old.

All meshes can be found in Surfaces>End Tables for 145, 115, 85 and 55 Simoleons. There is a collection file included in the download. Happy cluttering!!

Riekus13 did some pretty recolors, you can find those HERE

Polygon Counts:
Cabinet: 610
Sideboard: 574
Cupboard: 476
Shelf: 62

Darn, MLC! Just when I've been trying to pare down my DL folder! But these will be great for my ultra-modern houses, many thanks.

Really nice! I'm curious about some of the clutter though, mostly the llama, the water sprayer, the brush jar, and the books, if you remember where you got at least some of them I'd be very grateful!

The llama is mine - it's at Garden Of Shadows somewhere since it was part of a Christmas In July type event years ago. The books are Mira's Nolen books - but the recolors I used by someone else. The other 2 things are by Anye, a recent upload on her Tumblr. I can't give links right now BUT if you can't find that llama anywhere, let me know and I'll upload it for you. The books - if you Google for them you should get lots of results and recolors usually include her meshes (I'm not sure the meshes are available any other way now.) As for Anye's stuff, that should be relatively easy to find.

I'm having trouble with making the cabinets connect together like in the screenshots. When i try to put them together, the end up on top of each other because they all act like shelves.

Oh, sorry, I should have said in the post: you'll need to fill all of the slots on one mesh before placing another one above it OR use a slot blocker (there's one at Fairyforest) to fill any slots you want to leave empty.

Wonderful work ! I'm happy to see you still creating.
