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.
At the suggestion of Psychosim I have added cross bars between the legs of the Bar Stool. Files have been replaced. Thank you Psychosim. ♥

Those of you familiar with SimFused Tiny Treasures will be aware that I made additional pieces for Tiny Treasures Part ll - The Quaint Set, Debra (HeartDeco) suggested at the time that I make them full size. As a surprise for Debra, I've been working on them and am now ready to share them with everyone.

It's a little complicated but here goes...the end table, 2 tile coffee table and 1 tile coffee table are all slaved to the 'Home Office Desk by Quaint Design'. The 1 tile dining table, dining chair and bar stool are all slaved to 'The Talking Table'. The single bed is slaved to the double bed and the bedding for both beds is slaved to the EA/Maxis bedding.

Okay, that's the meshes sorted out, now to the recolours. I've recoloured the Counter Culture "Surface" in the 4 Quaint colours and pine to match The Talking Table top also recoloured the Talking Table in solid Quaint colours and Pine. Added 4 recolours of the Home Office Desk by Quaint Design, without the flowers and a pine with flowers. Recoloured the "Anti-Quainted-Ed" Ltd. Ed. Armoire in matching colours (with and without the flowers). I think that's it, oops! nearly forgot the OFB "Anti-Quainted-Ed" Medium Ltd. Ed. Armoire recolours to match, with and without the flowers.

These are base game compatible - no EP's or SP's required...except the "Anti-Quainted-Ed" Medium Ltd. Ed. Armoire which requires OFB.
