Do I Detect a Pattern Here?

I've been noticing a trend lately: reinvigorating old furniture with great patterns. Talented DIY-ers are ditching plain old paint in favor of unique designs. 

Can I tell you how much I love a good pattern? Colorful, classic and uplifting are the key words. Done wrong, they can be a disaster. That's probably what has prevented me from tackling them. What if I get 2/3 of the way done and find that the pattern doesn't match up? There's something to be said for classic finishes. Still, I have resolved to step out of my comfort zone more. And this is a really cool trend.

Floral and yellow? Yes, please!

This beauty might require that I buy all new jewelry...I'm not sure what I have is worthy of this masterpiece.

...that I do NOT have the artistic skills for this! But it doesn't make me love it any less.

I think I've died and gone to furniture heaven. I want to be 14 again just so I can rock this dresser under my Bieber poster.

For those of us novices, there's always ombre!

I've saved my absolute favorite for last. This chair. Must. Be. Mine. What we have is something special.

Has anyone tried this?
