We want to remove these wall sconces (there are two of them) and patch up the wall. We may want to still use the switched outlet.
If I want to keep the switched outlet how should I re-wire?
If I also want to removed the switched outlet how should I rewire?
Is it safe to keep the junction box there and push all the wires into the wall and patch up? That seems like it could be dangerous bc someone might drill into the hole later and hit live wires!
