You can buy replacement vanity tops at home improvement stores like Lowes, Menards,etc. They are easy to replace if you have the proper tools to unhook the plumbing and reinstall (or buy new) faucets. Make sure you measure the vanity top on your vanity as well as the vanity itself. Vanity tops do come in different sizes so you want to get the correct one the first time!
I found granite tops for both my bathrooms at Habitat for Humanity. They were brand new left over from a housing job. They were half the price of the hardware store.
I followed the instructions here and painted mine. I love it and cost less then $40.
You can paint the top here is info to help you out.

Hi Pam, I painted my old counter tops and it lasted 12 years! Here's how I did it!
Lightly sand to rough the counter top up
Go to your paint store, tell them what you are painting, they will pick the proper paint and primer for you, you can even get the primer tinted for a better coverage
Once you have sanded, clean with TSP, then rinse and dry thoroughly,
Apply your primer coat, let it dry according to the instructions
Once the primer coat is dry, apply your paint coat, I would apply 2 or 3 as it will be stronger and thicker
Once your coats dry, you can apply a matte clear coat, either by spry or roll on, keep a small container of it under your sink for touch ups, I had my counters like this for 12 years, until I could afford new ones.
I used a few uncolored glass cutting boards for protection. It held up very well. And only costs you the prices of the materials.
You can use a kit to paint it. If you want to replace, buy another the same size and you can swap them out. It is probably sealed down with some type of screws underneath and silicone.

Hey Pam! I created a bathroom vanity counter with an epoxy pour over plywood, so you could easily do the epoxy over your existing countertop! I LOVE how it turned out, it looks like marble but was only 80 bucks and I have enough left to do another! Epoxy will last much longer than paint and it is super easy to do! I haven't created the post yet to show how to do it, but here's a pic of how it looks! YouTube has many videos on it, just search epoxy pour counters! Hope that helps!
You could ups stick on tiles - lots available now on line too. or use Contact or tile over it or stencil or paint or decoupage it and then cover with waterproof sealer maybe?
