Steps taken to replicate the issue:
1. Open chest
2. Close chest
3. Perform various actions.
As of right now, I have no idea what caused the texture bug. The Z-fighting (there may be a more accurate name for this) of held items I can verify is caused by opening and closing a chest.
Going Home and using the Recent Apps Button to reopen MCPE stops all bugginess temporarily.
