Before & After: Faded Outdoor Umbrella Sees The Light of Day

Ashley had a very faded striped pastel umbrella that she could have easily jettisoned. Instead, she took a little inspiration from this Urban Outfitters umbrella, budgeted about $20 for her version, and gave it a little makeover...

Ashley used a paint sprayer with thinned down latex paint to give it about three coats of bright white paint. Then, she and her husband laboriously hand-painted a design on each panel. The final step was attaching pom-pom trim around the edge.

What do you all think of the final result? Head over to Bigger Than the Three of Us for more photos and details.

Thanks Ashley!
