/* -----   Footer Start   ----- */

       padding: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
       width: 100%;
       background:#333434;
}
#footer-wrapper {
       margin:auto;
       padding: 20px 0px 20px 0px;
       width: 960px;
}

#footercol-wrapper {
       background:#333434;
       float: left;
       margin: 0px 5px auto;
       padding-bottom: 20px;
       width: 32%;
       text-align: justify;
       font-size:100%;
       line-height: 1.5em;
       word-wrap: break-word;
       overflow: hidden;
       color:#fff;
}

.footercol {margin: 0; padding: 0;}
.footercol .widget {margin: 0; padding: 10px 20px 0px 20px;}

.footercol h2 {
      margin: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
      padding: 3px 0px 3px 0px;
      text-align: center;
      color:#fff;      text-transform:uppercase;
      font-family:'Skolar Bold',Palatino,"Cambria","Droid Serif","Georgia","Times New Roman","Times",serif;
      font-size:21px;
      border-bottom:2px solid #fff;
}

.footercol ul {
      margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
      padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
      list-style-type: none;
}

.footercol li {
      margin: 0px 0px 2px 0px;
      padding: 0px 0px 1px 0px;
      border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
}
/* -----   Footer End   ----- */

Again search for </body> tag and just above/before it add the following code

<div id='footer'>
<div id='footer-wrapper'>
<div id='footercol-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footercol' id='footercol1' preferred='yes'>
</b:section>
</div>
<div id='footercol-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footercol' id='footercol2' preferred='yes'>
</b:section>
</div>
<div id='footercol-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footercol' id='footercol3' preferred='yes'>
</b:section>
</div>
<div style='clear: both;'/>
</div> </div>

Finally click Save Template button and you're done!
Now go to Layout and start adding widgets to your footer section.

For your Information:
  • background:#333434; The background color of the footer section, you can change it according to your website colors
  • background:#333434; The background color of the widget columns. In my case the backgrounds of both footer section and widget columns is same
  • color:#fff; The color of Widget Title
