The Union Jack is a hot little trend in home decor these days. If you've been dying to incorporate it into a makeover but worry that the trend won't last, don't fret! Do it anyway! If you like it, you like it. And plus, it's been around since 1801. I don't think it's going anywhere soon.
Here's McKelle's take from In De-Stress Mode.
And Lana from Mz Cellaneous Jacked up this $5 dresser. High fives to both ladies for getting the design correct too! As you can see, it's not exactly symmetrical. Wikipedia has a really helpful diagram that explains how to make the lines perfectly, right HERE.
And of course, one of the first makeovers that started it all, by Miss Mustard Seed.
Trendy or not, this will always be just a great, classic design. Here are some flags that probably won't be catching on anytime soon:
Benin Empire (won't be vacationing there ever)
Libya (more like Lib-yawn)
Sicily (the stuff of nightmares)
