    I am in the process of installing a wall mounted flat TV in my bedroom. On the other side of the wall where I am putting in the TV is a bathroom. I would like to take power from that outlet box (in the same bay) to power the TV. The bathroom outlet is a dedicated 20 amp GFCI receptical.

    I know that I can do it and that it would work without any problem. My questions are:

    1. Any code issues I should be aware of?
    2. Is that would a professional would do or would they look to take power from another source?

    Thanks in advance.
