Splicing a connection

In my bathroom upstairs I have an exhaust fan (no light just a fan) that was wired to my bathroom recepticals, lights, etc. and run downstairs to the breaker box.

In the adjacent closet, I have a light that was attached to old knob and tube wiring and all the wiring has since been disconnected. What I am wondering is can I somehow just run a splice from the exhaust fan or something over to the closet light or do I need to run a new line for that light? Bear in mind that my extent of electrical work was to put in ceiling lights / exhaust fan.

Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!

Mark

You cannot connect this to your bathroom circuit. But you can connect it to certain other circuits in your house.

Cool, thanks. So like a bedroom circuit might work?

Yes, a bedroom circuit would probably do fine. Read two or three books on home wiring before planning out your project.

Thanks -- any books specifically you would suggest? I know some very little basics but I have another project or two I'd like to tackle along the same lines.

Visit your home center (or public library if you prefer not to buy). Find basic electrical books with a lot of colorful pictures or diagrams that speak in a language that makes sense to you. Black and Decker has a few good ones. Look at the Home Depot 123 books too. Don't skip over the early chapters on safety and proper technique.
