Fabric Dilemma

Now that V is in her toddler bed, I need to make her a nice little duvet cover that compliments her bed skirt. I ordered this vintage striped sheet from Etsy, but now realize that the colors might not mesh as well as I had hoped.

I want to dye over the sheet to change the white to a more off white, and in doing so slightly darken the pinks in the sheet. But how do I do this? I know that I have read about dying over patterned fabric in the past, but cannot for the life of me find any tutorials online!

Should I use a tea to lightly change the color? I do have plenty of fabric to test this method out a bit.

I am also going to spray paint Violet's toddler bed. It was given to us by my sweet sister-in-law, and she has given me her blessing to do with it what I want.

I am leaning towards a deeper blue or a green. But I am open to other colors.... oh my indecisive mind!

So what do you guys think? Can you recommend any great dying techniques or DIY's? Which paint color for the bed?
