Umbrella Repair

At Replayground, our favorite activity is turning old stuff into amazing new stuff. But we also like to remind folks that it's a great, green idea to keep and maintain the things you already own.

Discarded umbrellas in trash cans or gutters always look so sad, especially when you know they probably only need a little time and attention to look - and function - just like new!

With some more blustery weather expected in our neck of the woods in the near future, I thought it was worth sharing a great umbrella repair tutorial I came across on Instructables. And of course, if you've got an umbrella that just can't be resuscitated, consider turning the frame, or beautiful waterproof fabric, into something new and exciting.
