Column headers

How would I go about augmenting the LoF and LoT to include a headings over the numbers? Preferably without a package addition as I've worked hard to get the styling just so and I don't have time to learn how in another way. The only packages I'm using are the following:



@Christian - Please forgive me. I am floundering a bit under the pressure, I I don't have much but it has been a LOT leg work to get this far. I'm using LyX and have placed what breaks with packages like tocloft or titletoc in my preamble.tex which contains the following



%% Conform headers to school styling for headers -- turabian
  {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}}{12pt}{\MakeUppercase}

%First level; centered, boldface or italic type, headline-style capitalization

%Second level; centered, regular type, headline-style capitalization

%Third level: flush left, boldface or italic type, headline-style capitalization

%Fourth level: flush left, roman type, sentence-style capitalization

%Fifth level: run in at beginning of paragraph (no blank line after, boldface or
% italic type, sentence-style capitalization, terminal period

% fixup TOC indentation and add . . . separator on Chapter lines  

% Fixup chapter lines in TOC for all caps
\def\@chapter[#1]#2{\ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
                                   {\protect\numberline{\thechapter .}\MakeUppercase{#1}}%

My school requires this for my thesis. I feel it self evident as well but not my call.
