Blog Questions...Boarders and Boxes and Columns Oh My!

So I am hoping to make some small changes to my blog but this is not something that at all comes naturally to me. 

I'm searching and pinning and have a few things sort of in the "I think I can do that" category.  But there are other things that are still stumping me. 

I was thinking though that perhaps if I just asked y'all for tips, maybe others could benefit too. 

So here's what I am stuck on...

* I want to eliminate boarders.  See how I have the standard blogger boxes and a light grey boarder?  Even if I switch the grey to white, the boxes/boarders will still be there.  I don't want to be boxed in (pun intended).  I just want an all white background without any trace of the boarders.  Clean and crisp.

* I want three columns, which I sort of have now if you scroll down.  But I want the main blog post column to be in the center.  I thought Hopsy did a blog post on how to do this years ago but I have searched her blog and I can't find that post.  So maybe I am imagining it.  Anyway, the point is, do you know how I can do that?

So if you know how to do those things or if you've recently read a great tutorial (read: easy for an idiot to understand), please share. 

Thanks, friends!!

I am terrified to change anything in my layout/html because I don't want to mess up the whole thing.

I thought they tried to make the layout easier to change with the new blogger. Wish I had some tips! My designer did all of the code for me

I just moved over to wordpress but I assure you both of those things are super easy. I just googled it and found a tutorial.

This one looks pretty easy. http://www.bloggerbuster.com/2007/07/create-three-column-blogger-template.html

This one says you can do it without even touching the code. http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/blogger/QKl9nihRqtA/discussion%5B1-25-true%5D

I would suggest copying your current code and saving it in a word document. It will make you feel better in the (very unlikely) off chance something happens.

Hope that helps!
