Shaving..in the dining room

DH keeps shaving over a decorative basket thingy, in the dining room.
The downstairs wc is 10 seconds in the other direction but he won't do it in there. He also won't do it in the main bathroom upstairs where he showers every morning.
If I don't clean it up, he will just leave it (so ignoring it won't work).
Last week I (very calmly in the friendliest way possible!) asked him if he had shaved over the baskets again because I had already hoovered and didn't want to do it again before the school run. Complete with foot stomping (he's 38) he stropped off and accused me of 'personally attacking him'
Sooo...AIBU to find it gross and wish he could use the downstairs wc?! Is it just me?

Ye god! Where do you find them?
OP - if he ever says you are personally attacking him again reply "I fucking will be if you don't learn to have some respect for our home"
Hand him the hoover, tell him to clean up after himself. Point out that the key description is 'dining' and he is disrespecting you, the home and himself in being such a fucking slob.
Either that or sit in his favourite seat/his side of the bed and shave your legs and leave your mess where it falls.
Or borrow his electric shaver and wait for him to come into the dining room for his shave and, with a cheery smile, shave your armpits over the same bowl... remember to keep on smiling as he shouts/turns green/flees!

Haha! Thanks for the replies...chuckling away at a soft play place
I had to ask just to be 100% sure I wasn't being unreasonable. Thinking about collecting the hair and leaving it in his car (which is kept spotless..!!)
Or putting a big sign over the basket ARE YOU LOST? BATHROOM BEHIND YOU.
Honestly don't know why he is like it. I know he can tidy after himself because his Mum used to visit monthly at the start of our relationship 10 years ago. The place was spotless as if Id had a pro cleaning company in.
Even my 5yr old ds and 3yr old dd help pick up their own mess.
