Distressing "Before and After"

Husband's at the cricket, too hot to felt....so...
Made myself pretty hot doing this actually! I'd had this piece of furniture in a shed for years. I am reliably informed it's called a tallboy. Slightly art nouveau would you say? I'd already sanded one drawer when I remembered to take a photo. 
I ended up distressing it a bit more than I'd intended, but I quite like it. I used a more liquid clear wax that  can be applied with a brush for the first time, which  found much quicker and easier. 
A bit of gold behind the green adds a touch of faded opulence. Might upgrade it from the shed to a bedroom.
