Front Porch Furniture

I've been slowly trying to make my front porch look nice on a very limited budget.  It is a screened in front porch that my cats love.

I bought two teal Adirondack chairs that match the trim on my house.
 My shadow looks funny!

I could not believe Wal Mart had chairs the same color as my house!

My husband painted a dark green plastic bench I had.  I wanted yellow!  Yellow makes me happy!

 I bought it for $10 many years ago!  You can tell Cupcake likes it!
I bout this bistro table for $15 a couple of months ago and had my husband paint the brown top yellow to match.
Sorry about the glare from the sun!  Oreo thought he would help with the glare!
Now I need to re-ulphoster the glider rocking chair to match.
I was thinking of this material to help tone down the bright colors.
It has teal/turquoise, burnt orange, and dark yellow in it.  Do you think it will match?

 I also need an outdoor rug, and I will be happy with my front porch!

Give me your opinions on that material please, the glider is my next project!

Thank you!

I like the fabric with the paint that you've picked for the porch. It looks like it's a cheerful area.

The fabric will look lovely! I'm not really into matchy matchy!

I think you did pretty good on your budget porch makeover. I like the fabric.

I was thinking of buying a (purple!) Adirondack chair at WallyWorld this weekend! Your color scheme looks great - including that fabric which will pull it all together. I don't necessarily think it needs to be toned down - but that is because I love bright colors :)

The furniture is cute. The fabric goes well with both colors. Hope the leg is getting better.
