I have a switch that controls a plug in the wall in the living room.( turns a lamp on and off) I want to put in a light fixture in the ceiling in the center of the room. I could run a wire from the plug to the new light fixture and it would be an easy fix. But without putting lots of holes in the wire getting to the plug is impossible (outside wall insulation and three cross studs in the way). i can get at the wire from the switch to the plug in the attic space. Now my question
Can i junction the wire in the attic and connect to the white and red wire and ultimately do the same thing as ( pigtailing at plug) to the wire to control the ceiling light?
Any help would be appreciated
