Styling Sociable Links in footer?

I've been trying to style my sociable links, but can't get it to work. I wanted to put it in a table so that I can have a background image, but the sociable links won't stay in my table.

I put this in my post footer:

			<td class="sharethis">%sociable%</td>
and added this in css

td.sharethis {
background: url(http://www.kristalnorton.com/images/ShareBG.jpg); 
background-repeat: repeat-n;

Can anyone suggest a better way of doing this? I want the bg image, plus I'll need to add in padding to make sure its aligned on my image correctly.

Perhaps someone here knows where I can just add in the bg and padding to the actual sociable plugin code? I've seen similar questions on the plugin support forum, but no one is answering them.

Not sure what this is:
background-repeat: repeat-n;
Can you post a link so we can see the full code?

The background repeat is so that the background image only displays once and doesn't repeat. I've posted all the coding I'm using in my first post, and it comes out looking like the image I've attached. The share links are supposed to be on top of my tape image. The funky alignment only happens when I add in the %sociable% tag, so I'm sure it has something to do with the way sociable is coded.
