Cute chest of drawers

When I went to pick these up, I fell I love with this cute set of drawers so much I decided to keep them.

They are so imperfect and rugged., I would love to know what they were used for once upon a time. I only lightly sanded as I loved all the lumps and bumps. Then painted in Frenchic Blackjack, then finished with lashings of browning wax to maintain that vintage look. 

They are going to a family member, which is why the R has been stencilled on.
