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.
Most of the credit for this goes to Leesester at mts for coming up with this impressive idea to empty Maxis bookshelves, and add slots to them. You will need her deco books found Here (while your there, you can pick up the Ikea Bookshelf version). This is not a default replacement. So it won't override your teen style bookshelf, but it will add to it. It is repositoried, so any recolors of the original Teen Style bookshelf you have downloaded will show up in this, also in order to recolor this, you will need to instead recolor the original. Now you can decorate your bookshelf how YOU want it to be! I've included two files. One is for if you have the base game and Teen Style, but don't have Freetime. The Other file is for if you have Freetime or Apartment Life. I hope you enjoy this very much, I'm very pleased to share it with you!

You can find recolors of this mesh Here Also, you can find scaled down sculptures for mine and Lee's bookshelves Here , at my site TheNinthWaveSims. No registration required to download.
