My garage has no permanent light fixtures. The only thing there is an old chandelier hung from a hook in the ceiling and plugged into the wall.
To turn it on I have to use a pull chain which is in an awkward position that I don't like at all. Just inside the garage on the wall are my garage door switches. I don't really want to do everything that would be required to put a switch in the wall there, so I was wondering if it would be possible (and within code - I live in Arkansas if that matters) to mount a light switch to the wall that powered... something.
Presumably an outlet that I mounted elsewhere, such as the ceiling (we actually already have a ceiling mounted electrical box that the garage door openers are plugged into). Then I could plug the lamp into that outlet and just flip the switch in the garage which would be far more convenient.
