before & after: stefanie’s brooklyn limestone

i’ve been admiring stefanie at brooklyn limestone for some time now. along with her husband, stefanie has been undertaking the renovation of a 100 year old limestone in brooklyn. to say that they had their hands full would be an understatement. some of the rooms were in better shape than others, but many (check out the pink bathroom- ack!) would have had me turning around going “nope! can’t do it!”. it’s with great pleasure that i get to share 16 of my favorite before & after photos from stefanie’s MAJOR project. i hope you’ll enjoy this tour through their renovation as much as i have- they’ve done a great job and from everyone here at d*s i’m sending stefanie and her husband a huge virtual high five and “well done!”. click here to read more about the renovation process on stefanie’s blog. thanks, stefanie!

    You did an absolutely STUNNING job. Could you tell me what color paint is in the office? Also, where did you get that great silver desk and black dresser/cabinet?

    Sarah: The tub wasn’t tossed out. It was just moved to another bathroom.

    Perry: Thanks. The office is painted in Benjamin Moore Waterfall. Both the desk and the sideboard are from Ikea.
