HOW TO SAVE A CHAPEL:
1. gut it. (in this case, nearly a dumpster. how the hell folks managed to hoard that much stuff in a 10×10 room, well never know.)
2. evict the squatting rodents & powerwash.
3. powerwash again.
4. several layers of lysol followed by even more coats of killz. (to kill the smell of the army of mice that had taken up residency)
5. paint until your bristles fall off.
6. turn it back into a chapel. (finally)
7. fill it back up with all the religious artifacts found around camp. (in our case, a bazillion crucifixes alone).
