Refresh Your Worn-Out Patio Umbrella On The Cheap

Refresh Your Worn-Out Patio Umbrella On The Cheap

If the years have taken their toll on your patio umbrella, there’s no need to splash out on a new one. . Bigger Than the Three of Us shows us how to breathe new life into a tired parasol and give it a fancy, expensive look.

The trio took an old, cheap umbrella that didn’t take too well to over-winter storage and transformed it into a fancy, designer-lookalike patio umbrella without much effort. The makeover is dramatic, and better yet, it’s simple to do. You’ll need some latex paint and a roller — although you may find a spray gun is quicker and easier — to apply a base paint.

You can then go to town with whatever design takes your fancy. Ashley and Luke used a combination of stencils and painting-by-eye to get the perfect look, and finished off with a decorative pompom trim.
