Help! I need second, third and fourth opinions...

There is a big patio sale at a local store that just started today, so I snuck by on my lunch break. The cushions I found are, A. obnoxious lime green, and B. a tiny bit too big for the chair. Do you think it matters? If we decide the size doesn't matter I have one more green one and will go back for a pair of navy ones to tone it down (I would have bought 4 green ones if they had them but they didn't).
Assuming I ever get to borrow my father-in-law's pressure washer and get the green paint off of the concrete, what do you think? Four navy ones would just have been too boring (and more expensive, these were the most on sale and I love lime green). I need alternate opinions before my color-blind husband gets home...

Also, they're very comfy. Big points for that. I think two green and two navy will look cute and revitalize this patio set (left here by prior owners, cushions really suck). Because a new patio set is totally not in the budget.

I love the green (which isn't obnoxious at all) and agree that two green and two navy would look great. Go for it!

I really like the green, too, and in the photos they don't look too big. It sounds like a good plan to me.

I love them, too. A few containers with creeping jenny (and I don't know what else) on that patio and they'll fit right in! I love chartreuse plants--have a blast.

Late to the party... but lime and navy usually look great together. (That's why I held onto my navy slacks for so long.) I don't see a size problem with the cushions.

The patio definitely needs that paint pressure-washed off, but it'd need that regardless of what color cushions you chose.

It is done. Lime and navy cushions make my porch look like somewhere that one should be sipping a margarita. I will post pics of my BBQ this weekend when it's all decorated (well, a little bit decorated) and you can see the final choices.
