Martha Stewart has finally met her match. For Delena Denham Dobrenchuk, founder and owner of 3-D Designs, Interior Direction, it's not about decorating-it's about redecorating. Dobrenchuk, 37, operates a home-redecorating service that does interior design with clients' existing furniture.

Dobrenchuk rifles through attics and under beds for long-lost treasures. Going from room to room, she carefully rearranges furniture and accessories-all for an hourly consultation fee and a varying fee per room. She currently averages 15 homes a month, with most of her business coming from Web site and client referrals.

"I can whirlwind furniture in a matter of seconds," says Dobrenchuk of her skill at arranging. "It's all about putting the puzzle together."
