Stand, Table, Chest?

I just ran this cute little guy down to my antique booth At Time Goes By in Greenwood, Mo.   But as I was writing the tag I couldn't decide what to call it.  Is it a stand, a bedside table or a small chest?

Anyway I wish I had taken a before photo.  I found him buried in a damp basement at an estate sale.  All the paint had peeled off the sides and legs from the damp.  I brought it home and used a putty knife and sand paper to get rid of the peeling paint.  Gave it three coats of an off-white paint and used a hand sander to distress it a bit.  When I sanded it some very pretty blue popped through that I wasn't aware was there.  But I was so pleased with the result and couldn't have planned it better.  Love it when that happens.

Now I hope someone likes it as much as I do and takes it home for Christmas even if I don't know what to call this piece of furniture.

I don't know exactly what to call it either, but no matter. It is just precious.

Oh and if I *had to* name it, I'd call it a wee-little chest. :-)
