How To Upcycle Cheap Chests?

Q: I recently moved, and my landlord left three of these drawer chests in my apartment and told me to keep them as he didn't know what to do with them. I normally strip and stain any furniture I have to match everything else, in Minwax Onyx. These chests are MDF and have a plastic laminate over them.

I was hoping someone would could give me some DIY suggestions on how I could revive these to give them an industrial vibe.
