Install receptacle from light switch (pics)...

We want to installed a receptacle a couple feet away from a light switch that will be used to power a tv and a Roku.

Here's a pic of the wiring for the light switch...

There is also another light switch in the room that controls the same overhead light (it's on an adjacent wall). Here's the wiring for that one...

What needs to be done?

Hi, that top switch looks like a 3 way, and the bottom one looks like a 4 way, how many places is the light controlled from? At any rate the boxes look to be over filled already, I would find another source for the new receptacle.
