I have a switch on my wall in my master bedroom that that controls an outlet on a wall. I would like to install an over head light on my ceiling. I assumed that power came into the switch and then went to the plug. I went into my attic and found the wire that comes the switch and runs over to the the wall that the plug is on. I cut the wire at the wall in an attempted to relocate it tot he center of my ceiling for my new light. Because I ASSUMED I was wrong. After cutting the wire I found that the power came into the the plug then traveled out to the switch. Now my switch is dead. I believe the wires are 12/2... they look bigger that 14/2 . what I don't understand is that the power wire in has the white wire going to the plug and the black wire from the power in is twisted to the white wire going to the switch. How does that work? I cut open the wall in the other room to expose the back of the box..... can I still install my new light and have it work off the switch?
