Question 3 way to outlet question????

Ok I have a light in my kitchen, it is controled by two 3-way switches. (one on each side of the room) Nothing else on that line. Is it possible to take out one of the 3-ways and make it an outlet; and make the other 3-way a single pole switch?

Yes it is.
Do you know where the power is coming in. Switch1, switch2, or light? If you can open each of the switches and the light and tell me where all the wires are attached I can tell you how to connect it.

I cannot tell for sure, (friends parents house) I would assume it comes from the s1 (kitchen entrance) that is where there is three other switches. I want to replace S2 with an outlet.
I will have to make a trip out there next week and look at the boxes.
