Yes, as long as the receptacle you are piggy-backing from is not in a bathroom, kitchen, dining room, or laundry room. Also, you would be well advised to do the math to make sure this modificatoin will not increase the load on the circuit above its capacity.

This is a pretty easy job and is well covered by almost all books on home wiring. I suggest you pick up such a book -- it will give you all the information you need to do the job safely. Post back if you have specific questions. We'd be happy to help.
