ceiling fan and lower outlet wiring


I have a double switch in the bedroom. One switch works the lower of the two outlets all over the room and the second switch works the ceiling fan. I cannot get them hooled back up correctly.

I'm sorry?
How about telling us what you did and/or how you wired them?

Okay. How did it happen to become like this in the first place?
