Pitiful Patio

Back in April, I showed you our outdoor, above the garage, patio area:

As I mentioned yesterday, I got our patio set from the sandblaster. The Midwest has been insanely humid this Summer, so I opted to have them primed before I picked them up to avoid them rusting on the way home or before I got all the pieces painted.

I knew I wanted a lime green paint color, so I purchased 1 can each of Rustoleum Lime Green and Rustoleum Green Apple, because I wasn't sure which would give me a better color:

 The one on the left is Lime Green, the one on the right is Green Apple. I hate them both. Mister hates them both. Any ideas?
The fabric draped over them is the tablecloth I purchased.
This is the umbrella I want:

Here is the rug I bought:

Are there any other bright green spray paints out there?

I actually really like the lime green one a lot! What about teal? Maybe green is not what you invisioned. Love the other accents and can't wait to see it done!

I think the lime green works too. Other than that, my design advice is limited and lame.

I'm not really a fan of colored patio furniture. Good luck picking the color! What kind of roofing material is that deck made out of?
