Default Aftermarket lighting wiring

So I just recently got myself a 2005 Mustang, and I'm in love. I am, however, looking for some extra personalization. I'm looking into installing under-dash LEDS in both the driver and passenger side foot-wells, but I've ran into a problem with the wiring. I want to run them into a switch which I'll have in the center console, but I don't know where I could tap their power nor their ground into. Could anyone who has done this before help me out, and if possible post pictures of your own set up? It'll be much appreciated.

There is wiring under the center console, if you want a switch and to manually control when it is on, then tap into the wire for the power outlet in your center console (it is always on and available). I tapped into one of the other wires that is only on when the lights are on and didn't bother with a switch, that wire is also available under the center console, I don't recall which colors I used, but it's easy to figure out with a multimeter.
