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.
UPDATED: New and Improved version. Now base game compatible and if you have Apartment Life it is height adjustable. I have replaced the original file with this updated version.

Thinking back to my maternal grandparents bathroom I remembered a medicine cabinet above the sink, it looked something like the Cabimirror from Seasons but not so country. I went into Milkshape and pulled apart the Cabimirror, reshaped it to come up with a Cabimirror that looked like the one I remember. This is a new mesh, included in the mesh is 6 colours Avacado (yes, I know it is spelt wrong; but I used Maxis spelling), Black, Ivory, Salmon, Sky Blue and White. I also included 12 recolours to match my Vintage Sanitaryware.

I did try to make a Base Game version but couldn't get the Sims to use the mirror, if I ever get it working I will upload it.

This mirror is base game compatible, no EP's or SP's is required!
