I have four switches that work a fan and light combo. One of the switches just works the fan and the other three work the light. I was wondering how to take one of the light switches and wire recessed light up to it

Why is there three switchs to run just one light?

Do you want all the lights to come on at the same time? (including the light in the fan)

It depends on how the switches are wired. It is very likely that you can not do what you want without some new cabling to the switches.

Then you will need to find a power source and run new cables.

Got any ideas how I can run a new wire from the breaker box. It's a two story house and the breaker box and living room are on the lower floor

You may not even need to go to the panel, depending on the existing and new load.
