A Snazzy Shelf

I found this shelf (?) that I think used to be part of a large piece of furniture.  It seemed to be made to fit into a shallow cavity as a topper. If anyone has other ideas, let me know.

Here it is as found.
I immediately made it part of my "Mad for Turquoise in 2012" binge.  The warm wood color showing through contrasts perfectly with cool, cool, aqua.
Here it is after three coats of paint and careful abuse with an orbital sander.
Lastly, I gave it two coats of satin polyurethane, drilled out screw holes and affixed it to the shop for a photo.  It will sell in my shop or is available by emailing me.  It's approx. 16 x 11 x 7.
