So, egged on by this post, (here, here, and here), I'm starting a thread ala Pinterest Fail for J&S. I cannot stand how they consistently fail to come even kind of close to copying their inspiration images and rooms, especially since after they finish their unbelievably bad execution, they could JUST NOT POST THE INSPIRATION! But, no–they like to give us the measuring stick so that we can all see exactly how short of it they came. 

See a ridiculous inspiration pic vs. the Petershoddy version? Post it here.

Was trying to find the inspiration for the showhouse breakfast nook, because that one made me ragey, and I came across this gem (which totally belongs in the Sherry's Art thread, too)

This one was my breaking point. I'm pretty sure that was the day I registered my GOMI account under this username. It's just so painfully obvious she tried to copy everything in the picture and each element is so horribly done…

Woah.  When I saw the first picture of the staircase decorated for Christmas, I thought "I do not remember their house looking that classy at Christmas" and then I scrolled down and went "ohhhhhh, yeah… hey, Bruce the Moose."

 

Did she actually think she had replicated that??  It is stunning to see how similar the two houses looks, even if the decorations are so far removed from each other!

Granted the "inspiration" was a movie set and much fancier house to be sure, but in any event….
