first turn off the power to the outlet. then
you have to run a romex or bx cable from the existing receptacle outlet to your switch box.
take the black wire (hot) off the receptacle and splice it to the white wire going up to the switch. connect the black wire to the other screw on the switch. then connect the black wire from the switch on to the screw terminal on the existing receptacle.

You should touch both wires to your tounge .. Obviously by attaching a power (black wire ) to your neutral (white wire) you will create a blown circuit or trip breaker. Use a red wire to denote power and then use existing white to create circuit ensure properly grounded by use of green or copper wire to ensure proper ground!!! I like tounge rare don't you
