    Default trying to wire 2, 3 way switches from outlet , to operate a light

    ok, i am building a mud room for the wife and usually i can do basic wiring, etc. But what i have going here is confusing me so that's why i am asking for some help from a pro.
    I have a hot wire coming into the mud room. Right now i have the hot wire going to a new outlet. I also have 2 - 3way switches to operate 1 light in that room. Am i doing this the right way or should it be done another way? I am not sure how the wiring should be.

    There are many way to wire a three way setup.I would use one of these two options depending how the wire routing works out.
