Smile Electrical Outlet Question

I am remodeling a closet underneath my stairs to use as a sewing room. I need an electrical outlet inside the closet. There is one currently in existence on the right wall of the closet on the living room side. Can I split off this outlet and simply install one back to back in the closet side of the wall???

Yes, you can, provided that this outlet is properly grounded. Keep in mind that if the outlet in the living room is switched then the outlet in this sewing room may also be on the same switch.
