    Seems like you already have the template image done, so you just need to modify the CSS file.

    Well if you have the photoshopped image, then u can choose Save for Web in the file menu, to get individual images needed for web layout.

    You are going to have to REALLY do some serous remodeling of the kubrick layout. SERIOUS. And you do know that it uses a different layout when a single post is viewed, which means you have to model for two pages, not just one. Bet thing is to get a three column layout and then change it to make it "look" like Kubrick. Lots of work and I speak from experience.

    Position is Everything's 3 Complex Column - Perched on a Lily Pad
    Position is Everything Piefecta Ridid 3-Column Layout

    Should also help you for the three column layout that is bullet-proof.

    This isn't going to be very easy I'm afraid. Kubrick, the design in your mockup, is a fixed width 2 column design. That means if you want to add another column you either need to shrink the main content and existing sidebar or widen the whole page. Keep in mind that the images are also fixed width. If you widen the page the images will no longer work.

    It's not to say this is impossible but turning Kubrick into a 3 column design is going to take some real effort.

    If you're set on a 3 column design then I'd find a template that already has 3 columns. It's much easier to change colors and images then to grapple with 2 vs 3 column positioning.

    Check http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes. They've got a good list there and links to external sites. Find a theme with a layout similar to your mockup and you'll have a much easier time.
