I recently replaced a 1-gang switch box with a 2-gang box and added a brand new switch. The 2nd switch currently has nothing hooked up to it, as I need to cut out a new outlet.
The first switch/existing switch, controls my kitchen pendant lights. It is also on the same circuit as my kitchen LED lights.
When I first opened the box before adding the new switch, I was only expecting to see two sets of wires - 1) power from the circuit breaker, 2) to the switch to pendant lights. I was a bit confused when I saw a 3rd set, which I am assuming has to do with the LED lights on the circuit (controlled by a separate switch at a separate location).
My end goal is to make the new switch I put in be wired to a brand new outlet I will put in.
Below is a picture of how my current 2-gang box looks. I don't know exactly what wires go to what, since this already came with my house.
Can someone help explain how to wire my new switch to control a new outlet? It doesn't matter if the switch controls 1/2 the outlet or the whole outlet.
