Tatty to Natty Furniture

Dorchester, Dorset

Hello, I’m Vikki, an upcycling artist from beautiful Dorset. I create statement décor from things that probably would have ended up in landfill. I combine imagery (the quirkier the better) with wording (sometimes sweary, always empowering) and bright paint colours and bring all of these components together in textured layers. I aim to create the feel of a genuinely aged, bohemian piece that not only recycles but will make you smile every time you look at it.

The story behind the business
Meet Tatty to Natty Furniture

TTNF was founded after I had my first baby. I have always loved rummaging around at auctions and car boot sales and I have a passion for music, literature, art and vintage decor so I started to combine these things by upcycling furniture. I set up social media and found I had discovered a way to make a living around motherhood.

A shift in my approach occurred during lockdown. I started dismantling pieces that I had in storage to turn into art panels that could be sent through the post. This kept me going when I couldn’t source furniture and is now a mainstay of my work.

After an episode of depression, I started to paint more colourfully, I was drawn to uplifting and empowering wording as an antidote to the way I was feeling. And here is where you find me in my current manifestation. I want my pieces to make you as happy as it makes me to create them.
