Moving an Outlet
1 Attachment(s)

In my kitchen behind the countertops that I put under the window is an outlet. I would like to move that outlet above the countertop. I would also like to make it a double outlet.
In so doing, I am wondering if I can do this without having to go up in the attic and pull wires. Can I just pigtail (I think that is the proper term)the current outlet and leave it behind the cabinets and then connect/install 2 new outlets above the counter/under the window?

Not a really good picture or the window but the outlet is basically a few inches to the right of the silver bottle sitting in the window sill
