Adjust column values with adjacent cell values

I would like to know a better way of attaining this solution by writing sql query and with no temp table involved. I use CTE but I could not arrive at the solution, 1 screenshot is the current result and next screenshot is the expected result

I have the current result as per the image given with 7 column and null values here and there
I need an output as per the attached image. No null values should be in between and those values should be replaced by adjacent cell values.

Can we use a temporary table to build the result?

I'm thinking 2 possible approaches:

1. Load the original table into a temp table, and then do a series of update statements to update the values
2. use a series of "case when" clause in the select statement to return the result we expected

Thanks Ryan,

I thought of that way of having temp table and make the update accordingly to fetch the data as I need. But I would like to know is there any other sql Function to set this right in the query itself.
