Redecorate with what you already own
Ready to give your house a whole new look, but can't spare a lot of cash? You might already have most of what you need -- even if you don't realize it.
"Where 10 years ago someone was opening up an Architectural Digest and saying, 'This is what I want my room to look like,' now it's along the line of, 'This is what I have -- now what are we going to do?'" says Kerrie Kelly, author of "Home Decor" and owner of the Kerrie Kelly Design Lab in Northern California.
Designer Christopher Lowell, and author of "Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Organization," takes on that very challenge this season in his weekly Web series, "Ask Christopher," by redecorating a showcase home using the furnishings that are already inside.

Here to see eight ways you can give your house a new look using items you already have.
