Remodeling a bathroom

New here, but have been a DIY'er for many years. I am going to be remodeling one of our bathrooms. Its just a 1/2 bath (no shower).
I want to remove the old vanity for the early 80's thats in there. Looking at the vanity on the inside I cannot seem to see where it is mounted to the studs. there are no screws going into the bracing to mount it against the cornering walls. How is the best way to remove this? I figured I would just remove it piece by piece as it allows, then when it gets harder, I'll have to investigate further and possibly get out a prybar if necessary.

If you're not saving the vanity... have at it!

If you haven't already removed the vanity I am thinking you aren't looking high enough on the vanity. If you removed the sink(s) and the top I am betting the screws will appear in the very tippy top board.

Good luck and be safe. Also if you opt to go at it with a pry/ wonder/ crow bar make sure you get on top of a stud before you start prying otherwise you will be learning drywall repair as well, lol good luck!
