Possible to replace bath vanity top without breaking the cabinet?
 
Here is a photo... I'm thinking of getting the vanity top replaced with a granite one:

Is it possible remote the current top without breaking the cabinet?? What should I do to make sure or strategies/tips? Thanks!

Why would you break the cabinet---of course you can---

Use a utility knife to cut the caulk and old paint,so you don't damage the walls----use a thin prying tool to lift the top and separate it from the vanity--

I use a 5 in one painters tool for that job.

If all else fails break the top with a hammer and remove the thing in smaller pieces.

first. look underneath to see if there are any screws holding it in. they would be at the inside corners. if so, take em out.
