WE’RE the first to admit that our partner’s games consoles can be a bit of an eyesore – which is why we hide them in a cupboard under the TV so we never have to look at them. Obviously.
That said, one woman has decided to take a drastically different approach when she gave her gaming-obsessed boyfriend’s Xbox a very pretty makeover for Valentine’s Day.

Earlier this month, TikTok user Hayley filmed herself painting the console in a video that has been viewed over 4.5m times.
She captioned the clip: “I saw this girl paint her ps5 and I thought it was a cute idea for v-day.”
To begin with, Hayley covers the Xbox in a black base coat before going over it in vibrant blue paint.
Next, she adds some pink metallic clouds to her sky-inspired design and finishes off with yellow stars.

“I hope he loves it. She’s gorgeous,” she wrote. “Now let’s wait to surprise him.”
But after the video went viral, Hayley decided to surprise her boyfriend with his newly decorated Xbox a few days early.
In a follow-up video, she said: “Alright, the moment everyone’s been waiting for. I’m about to do the reveal!”
While her boyfriend is chilling out on the sofa, Hayley re-enters the room clutching the Xbox and hands it over to him.

Unsurprisingly, the bloke is left speechless and his first reaction is: “Ermm, it’s a cute design.”
When Hayley asks if he’s mad, he examines it further and replies: “I don’t know…”
But after he’s had a moment to dwell on it, he add: “Oh it’s alright.”
However, hundreds of people in the comments were left fuming on his behalf.
