Place a bucket underneath the U-shaped P-trap area. Turn off the water supply at the shut off valves (Image 1).
Disconnect the water supply lines (Image 2).
Disconnect the P-trap from the sink (Image 3) by unscrewing the drainpipe nuts and then removing the trap. Use a wrench as necessary.
Release the countertop by breaking the silicone seal on the edges. Pry up and pull away the top from the vanity.
Loosen any caulk between the vanity and the wall. A hole may need to be cut in the back of the vanity to make for easier removal.
Pull the vanity to release it from the wall, gently rocking it as necessary. Remove the vanity from the room with a helper.
Cut away the silicone around unwanted tiles (Image 1). In our project, to update the bathroom, we removed a couple of tiles that contained a soap dish and toothbrush holder.
Use a hammer and a cold chisel to break out the pieces (Image 2).
Rub off the butt joints on the replacement tiles with a tile stone until they fit into the spaces (Image 1).
Back butter the tiles with a thick layer of mastic to match the depth of the old tile and press them firmly into place (Image 2). Clean up any smudges immediately with a damp rag.
