Columns are indexed from 0 to n-1, the rightmost column in the code above is
3 for the list widget, so you have 4 columns already. Add another column for
the list widget's columnspan=2 and you end up with 5 columns in total.
self.label1.grid(row=1, column=0, columnspan=5, sticky=W)
should accomplish the desired layout.
