Fabric Ideas for Patio


I decided to update my boring beige and green back patio with some more colorful fabrics and paint.  I didn't realize how expensive outdoor cushions were until I started pricing them. So I started looking at discount stores and fabric stores for some inexpensive alternatives .Trying to find coordinating fabrics from different stores and manufactures is not an easy task but I did find these prints with the same aqua color that I think go together well.  I found a yard of outdoor fabric  to cover the cushions on the 4 dining chairs, a small chair cushion  and a set of two larger ones for the price of 1 seat cushion in the high end stores.  I plan on using the blue's and green's from the cushions to paint the chairs and table.

Does anyone have any inexpensive and colorful  DIY projects I can incorporate into my patio makeover?
