Can I compost this? reclaimed woodfilter

Hey mefi, I'm getting rid of old furniture and want to break some of it up and use the wood for gardening. I have an ~25 year old wooden box spring frame that isn't glossy and has a single spot of green spray paint on it, no stamps indicating treatment. Is this safe to repurpose as a compost box or is it toxic?

Most likely is the best answer; however, it will likely rot fairly quickly.
