Converting wall outlet to power ceiling light?
Here is what I have:
Duplex wall outlet, controlled by the wall switch, just above it.
Its located behind a living room couch, and is never used (its blocked by the furniture).
I am in the process of installing ceiling light from Ikea in this room (no previous ceiling light), and instead of running the cable back to garage (to the panel) and installing additional switch, I was wondering if I can rewire the outlet to power the ceiling light instead? It would require less cable too.
Is this a good idea? I would basically remove the wall outlet all together.
