In a recent video she showed viewers how she transformed her kitchen with just a £1 buy.
It’s clear from the layout of Marcie’s bathroom that her boiler wasn't something that could be easily moved.

Marcie said: “£1 hack with electrical tape to hide my boiler.”

Marcie used the tape to create straight lined stripes on her boiler.
The stripes completely transform her kitchen.
Looking at the finished result it's clear she has done the same thing on her cabinet doors.
So now the boiler and the rest of the kitchen match.
Marcie said the hack was done in no time and cost her just £1.
Marcie said: “My kitchen is a mish mash of things….so it was easy to disguise the boiler with some £1 electrical tape …it took 5 minites…it probably took longer to make this Tiktok”.
It's important that Marcie used electrical tape for this DIY project as opposed to using just regular tape.
The electrical tape is a type of pressure-sensitive tape used to insulate electrical wires and other materials that conduct electricity.
So the tape will stay intact when Marcie's boiler is on.

Marcie also places a plant pot underneath the boiler and a hanging plant on top of the boiler.
This helps to draw attention away from the large pipes and the large space underneath the boiler and the white walls around the boiler.
