So I have the greatest man on earth.  I was leaving all my makeup and whatnot around:



yucky. So he created, just for me, with his two hands:



I can't find pictures of the floor to ceiling bookshelf, or the three tiered shoe shelving for my closet, but trust me- this man makes some serious custom furniture.  And all I have to do is make a mess in order to reap the benefits? Sigh...And yes, he does this for a living. I am incredibly jealous.
This is his most recent piece:



It's a corner shelf and the tiki heads are cabinets:



And a giant halfpipe he built and painted with his friend:




And I did this one! I found this awesome vinyl tablecloth fabric on sale at Hancock so I recovered our chairs. They were filthy and permanently coated in animal hair.



So pretty! And now they wipe right off!



The pattern repeat is not completely straight, but I think it's too busy to be obvious. I love it so much, and I used it as an excuse to buy a new, more "precise" staple gun. Now I really want to bedazzle it.

Your man is very organized, and even though the tiki shelf is awesome, I love that he cares enough to help you keep your bathroom organized. I desperately need to do something similar after I fix the hole in the ceiling. LOL

Does he do that artwork from images, or does he just come up with that?  Lucky girl.

He comes up with things and then I have to google image them for him...the artist is not technologically inclined, lol.  Like the tikis- he wandered in one night and said "Hey. What do tikis represent? Can you find out for me? Get me a really good picture of a palm tree, too." And walked away.  What can I say, I make a mean inspiration board. It's a symbiotic relationship.

WOW.  I am SO in love with that tiki cabinet.  What a great piece of furniture.  I have done a LOT of internet searching for tiki furniture (particularly shelves) and that really stands out.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I love that you're bragging about your husband, that's so sweet.  Grin   He should be happy to have a wife who is so proud. (Maybe I'm mushy about this because it's my anniversary and I think we should all have great mates in our lives).  All of those projects are awesome.  The tikis are too cool.  I love the way your chairs turned out, I've been thinking about recovering mine with a vinyl tablecloth, too, glad to see they can look nice.
