We are currently re-building and restoring a cabin that was built in 1930. We have found an original chinking recipe to put on the inside walls and were wondering if we needed to put powdered lime over top of it?

Lime give the chinking the bright white color. I would experiment with a spot OFF THE HOUSE to determine what coloryou want to achieve. Ive seen jobs where the lime wasn’t installed evenly and it looks spotty. Be consistant with which ever way you choose.
