How does it turn out on the MDF? Does it look decent?

It can. If you use a brush to apply the stain, it will leave streak marks that almost look like wood grain.

This is MDF stained dark walnut:

The only thing though is that it doesnt cover up flaws like paint will..correct?

Correct. Also, make **** sure that you sand away ALL the glue from the edges. Tite Bond does NOT stain well at all and it makes things look like ****. To make sure you have sanded it all away, take a picture with a flash and look for yellow areas in the picture. You can't see them with the naked eye all that well.
