What can I do to spruce up my faded patio umbrella?

Do you have any ideas on how I can spruce up my 9 foot canvas patio umbrella? I hate to throw it away because it still works but is very faded and ugly. Can I paint the canvas? Any other ideas? It was bright red originally, now it is a dull pink. Any ideas would be appreciated! Ruth

Canvas can be painted, but the paint may crack. You could also try dying the fabric by painting a liquid dye directly on the fabric.

Dying it is an interesting idea. Do you think the dye will run when it rains? Is there a fabric sealer I can use over the dye?
