Although it didn't detract from the excellent play value, Jackie was not digging the drab hunter green canopy that came with this playset and decided to take matters into her own hands.

Jackie writes: We recently got our boys a new Rainbow play system, but we did not like the canopy options (either rainbow or forest green). I decided to use the vinyl canopy that came with the playlet as a guide for creating my own out of much more stylish outdoor fabric. For less than $80 I was able to make a new modern canopy for the play set!

We love the fabric Jackie chose and it really makes the yard look super fresh and cheerful. Want to try your own hand? Head over to Jackie's blog, Teal and Lime for her in-depth photo tutorial.
