    I had a windstorm to break my patio umbrella beyond repair. I looked at it closely to see how it was made, it was assembled with small screws. I removed all the screws from the staves and ended up with 8 sturdy staves (arms) that have come in very useful as tomato stakes! I also use them to make a circle of ghosts in my yard for halloween, and the folding metal section from the center of the umbrella makes a great "fire" when wrapped with orange flickering lights. The canvas from your umbrella could be used for chair pad covers if you're so inclined.

    Do you want to reweb it or just paint a faded one?

    Are you looking to clean your patio umbrella? I cleaned mine and got another 2 years out of it!
